Your First Visit is All About Your Child: His or Her Comfort, Happiness, and Health
Our dental team will review a cavity risk assessment form, clean and polish your child’s teeth, and complete a fluoride treatment. One of our doctors will meet with you and your child to discuss any X-rays, answer any questions you may have, and inspect for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis.
At your child’s next visit, one of our hygienists will clean and polish his or her teeth, and inspect for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis.
Bring Your Smile, but Also Remember to Bring These to Your Child’s First Appointment
- Your completed new patient information forms
- Your insurance card
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.
We understand your family has a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing for a dental visit, please remember an appointment can last between 20 and 40 minutes.
- If you must cancel an appointment, we require a call at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled visit. This will enable us to have an opportunity to schedule another child who is waiting for an appointment.
- If we do not receive a call to cancel your reserved appointment, your account will be assessed a $25.00 fee per 30 minutes scheduled.
- Missed sedation appointments will be charged the $300 reservation fee.
Thank you for understanding as we dedicate time for your family.
