Office Visits

Our Office

Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care. We understand that your child may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to children’s needs and it is our goal to make your child feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible.

Your first visit is all about your child — his or her comfort, happiness, and health.

During your child’s first visit, we will review their dental and medical history forms, clean and polish their teeth, provide a first patient comprehensive exam to check for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay, and take X-rays of their teeth and mouth if cooperative. Then, the doctor will meet with you and you and your child to discuss the X-rays, help create an individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have. If the treatment plan is extensive, the doctor will consult with you alone at a seperate appointment.

*Reminder: Children must be accompanied by their legal guardians to all first new patient appointments*

Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your child’s first appointment:

  • Your completed patient information form
  • Your insurance card
  • Proof of guardianship

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!

The American Dental Association recommends that children visit the dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep their teeth and gums healthy. X-rays will be taken yearly, and panoramic X-rays may be taken at cruicial developmental stages.

We understand that your family has a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing for a dental visit, please remember that an appointment can last between 30 and 50 minutes.

Our Policies

If you need to reschedule, we ask that you provide us with at least 24 hours notice so that your child’s time can be given to another patient.  If this happens under 24 hours, it is considered a broken appointment and a fee will be charged.  If no notice is given, the patient is considered a “no show” and is also considered a broken appointment. If a broken appointment happens three times, we will assist you in finding a dental home that accommodates your schedule better, and we have the right to dismiss you. If you are over 10 minutes late, we may not have enough time to see your child in their appointed time and we may have to reschedule.
