First Visit

Welcome to our office! We look forward to meeting you and your child. We truly enjoy working with children and look forward to providing the very best service in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

The first visit is an all-important introduction to a lifetime of good dental care. As such, we partner with you to insure a positive experience for your child. Where possible, we like the first visit to be scheduled by the first birthday. Regardless of your child’s age, we take this opportunity to review diet and oral care, and to identify any potential issues that may be developing.

We encourage you to accompany your child to the treatment area and welcome you to stay with them. Children react differently to new situations, so we tailor our treatment approach accordingly. Sometimes this means that a young child may sit with a parent or guardian during the appointment. In addition to diet and hygiene instruction, we like to take the time to examine the mouth, teeth and gums. Oftentimes, we clean your child’s teeth and apply cavity reducing fluoride. X-rays may be taken, when indicated. No treatment is rendered without your consent.

If tooth decay or other issues are noted that need follow up are identified, we will review any proposed treatment at this time. Rest assured that, if and when possible, any and all options for care will be presented.
