We can’t wait to welcome your child as our newest smile star! Dr. Linda and the rest of our dentistry team are looking forward to meeting your family and want to make sure you and your little one enjoy your first visit to the fullest. Use the information on this page to prepare for your appointment and take note of anything you don’t understand or are unclear about; we’re always happy to answer questions if you call our dental office.
Your Child’s First Visit
As you prepare your child for his or her first dental visit, keep a positive and excited attitude. Speak in general terms and avoid relaying negative stories about past dental experiences. Simply explain that it will be a fun visit where our staff will clean their teeth and leave the rest of the details to us! Please note that we reserve our morning appointments for children under the age of seven. We find that younger children are fresher and more cooperative in the morning. If needed, we will provide an excused absence form for your child's school.
Our primary goal is to make your child's first visit to the dentist a positive experience so that they will look forward to returning in the future. We believe that it is extremely important to foster the development of a person who will seek dental care for a lifetime. Depending on your child’s age and level of cooperation, you make expect the following at your first visit to our dental office:
Tour the facility
Meet the doctor and staff
A comprehensive examination
Digital x-rays, if necessary
Diet, oral hygiene, and mouth trauma education
Treatment plan for any issues that need addressing
Parents are always welcome to accompany their child throughout the examination. However, in some situations, a child may be better behaved when seen on their own. We respectfully ask that you follow the lead of Dr. Linda and her staff so that your child may receive the care they need.
We are thrilled to have you join our dental office and are honored that you have entrusted us with your child’s care. We look forward to working with you in caring for your child’s happy and healthy smile!
