Pediatric Dentist – Your Childs First Visit
Our office has been designed to be both kid and parent-friendly. Even more importantly; Our professional staff have dedicated their careers to helping children. The latest technology is combined with genuine compassion and concern.
At our office, we encourage parents to accompany their children during the first visit and routine cleaning appointments.
From the time you and your child walk through our office door, the staff has already started understanding your child’s needs, thereby starting to formulate a visit that will bring out the best in your child. Each child’s visit is specifically tailored for your child. Find more information here
Our approach is one of maintaining calmness and reassurance to both the child and the parent. A technique of “Tell Show Do” is our main behavior modification process. We believe the trust and comfort your child feels in their first dental experience will follow your child for a lifetime.
We try to keep your child in motion so that he or she can become familiar with our office and staff. There is time for play, learning, dental care and rewards. Each person that you meet will greet you and introduce themselves to you and your child. You may be pleasantly surprised to know that the doctor will always introduce themself to you. We know that each parent and child is special.
Parents know their child the best, but we recommend that you keep the description of the visit to the dentist as light hearted and routine as possible; just make it matter of fact. Depending on the child’s age, we may use silly terms or words to say what we are going to do. Relax and enjoy it! Let our experienced staff do what they are specially trained to do.
All paperwork including health histories, HIPPA forms, insurance forms, copies of insurance and ID cards, legal guardian papers or any court documents, must be completed before we see your child. We suggest that you download the forms from our website, fill them out at home and bring them in to our office completed, or arrive approximately ten minutes early for your first appointment to complete the paperwork at that time. If there is information that you prefer to keep from your child’s “little ears” please inform us.
