Monday-Thursday: 8am - 5pm
Friday: Occasional Appointments Available
Prior to the first appointment: Please help us to create excitement about your child’s dental visit! Discuss that the dentist will be kind and friendly. Also prepare your child for having his teeth counted and brushed. Remind him or her that there will be a reward if they follow all the dentist’s instructions. Avoid phrases such as, “It won’t hurt at all,” because your child may never have considered that a visit to the dentist could be painful!
What to expect at the first visit: Our goal is to create a positive experience for your child and to be able to thoroughly examine their mouth and teeth. If appropriate, we will provide a professional cleaning, dental radiographs and fluoride treatment. We will discuss effective strategies for cleaning your child’s teeth and give dietary recommendations to lower his or her risk for dental cavities. Other topics will be discussed, depending on your child’s individual needs. Parents are welcome to accompany their child their dental visits in our office, but we encourage children to complete dental visits alone when they are ready to do so.
Please call our office for questions about dental insurance.
