Your First Visit
Your child’s first experience with us is very important, so we’ll do everything we can to make sure they’re relaxed and happy from the moment they walk through our doors. When you come to see us, your child will be able to play in our waiting room, which is filled with various video games, toys, books, and even prizes. If your child has their own iPad or tablet, we more than encourage you to bring that along for the appointment! You and your child will then be escorted to a consultation room where you’ll have a chance to get to know a member of our staff and discuss your child’s dental health.
Then, you’ll get to meet your doctor, and they’ll take some time to talk about what’s going to happen during the appointment to help put your child at ease. After this, one of our dental assistants will give you and your child a brief tour of our office so they can become more familiar with their new surroundings.
Your child will then be seated on the edge of a treatment chair where the doctor will perform a gentle oral exam and count their teeth. Afterward, they will be cleaned and a few x-rays will be taken. From there, your doctor will formulate your child’s treatment plan to help meet their individual dental needs.
Even though your child will love spending time in our waiting room, we know that you would probably prefer if their appointment started as quickly as possible. To help with this, you can use our convenient patient portal right here on our website to fill out your forms beforehand. Simply enter the appropriate information, and when you’re finished, they’ll be automatically sent to our practice. Through this portal, you’ll also be able to schedule appointments and even make payments! Our goal is to always make taking care of your child’s teeth as convenient as possible.
