We look forward to welcoming your family to our office and establishing a 'dental home' for your children. Please provide us with a complete history so we can work together with you to successfully manage their needs. Below you will find the forms required for an initial visit.
We are a dedicated team of specialists providing excellence in oral health care to all children in a safe and comfortable environment. We are committed to educating our patient families, our community and ourselves .
Preparing For Your Child's First Visit
We often say, "Dentistry is Kid Stuff!" and take great pride our New Patient experience. Our primary objective is to begin building a foundation of trust and positive attitudes toward oral health care to serve your children for their lifetime.
We recommend scheduling morning appointments when your children (especially younger ones) are fresh and well-rested, and we encourage parents to keep explanations very simple. Positive comments such as, "We are going to visit the dentist today. They are going to make your teeth clean and shiny and give you a new toothbrush and prize!" will help to reassure them.
As you know, children can sense a parent's anxiety. We hope you will share your concerns with us and not your children. If you feel you want to provide more information to them, there are some excellent children's books available about a first dental appointment. Then, please leave the rest to us!
What To Expect
Our "open-style" treatment area promotes a supportive and fun environment. Children feel more comfortable when they are in the company of other kids. Additional private treatment rooms accommodate those who may not be best served in our open area.
We know, too, that children and their parents often feel more reassured if they can remain together during the dental visit, especially a first appointment! We welcome parents to remain with their child, and to work in partnership with us, to review and manage the oral health needs of our patients. We will perform a comprehensive examination and answer any questions you may have.
Our Health History form (2 pages) is available for you to download and complete prior to your appointment date. This will allow you and us to focus on your child on the day of your visit, rather than taking time to prepare paperwork. Please bring your completed forms with you on the day of your child's appointment.
