Child’s First Dental Visit
Prior to your initial visit you will receive a welcome packet from our office. We will ask you to complete several forms that will get you acquainted with our office and allow us to get acquainted with you. Please be prepared for your visit by completing all insurance and health information forms that will allow us to begin your child’s dental treatment. If your child has any special needs or concerns please alert us of how to make your child’s visit the best possible. If this is your child’s first visit to the dentist, we recommend arriving early to the office to acclimate your child to the new environment. There are several books in the reception area that review what a visit to the dentist is all about.
We reserve our morning hours for initial exams and new patients. Your child’s visit may last approximately one hour. Oral hygiene instructions will be provided along with suggestions to help your child care for their teeth. In most cases your child’s teeth will be cleaned and necessary x-rays will be taken on this visit. We shall provide an evaluation that will outline your child’s existing dental problems, possible orthodontic needs and proposed treatment.
We look forward to making your first visit with us informative and fun!
