FIRST VISIT - WHAT TO EXPECT

 

 

 

 

 

We provide a positive and caring environment.

 

We understand a child may feel apprehensive about his or her first visit to the dentist. Our staff is specifically trained in helping young children overcome dental anxiety in a positive and caring environment.

We allow parents to accompany their child during the exam or procedures to give needed comfort and reassurance. After the first visit, and depending on the age of the child, we suggest you allow our staff to accompany your child to the dental treatment area. Our goal is to gain your child’s confidence and overcome apprehension. However, you are more than welcome to escort your child to the treatment room, if you believe that would be best for your child. To ensure you and your child are comfortable, our staff will explain what to expect before, during, and after the dental procedure.

 

Prior to your first visit, you’re welcome to come in during office hours for a tour.
