Many children are unsure about their first dental visit, but they don’t have to be. Our Kids Dental facilities are custom-designed to spark excitement about the dentist’s office. Follow the hints below to make your child’s first visit with us more enjoyable.

HINT: Your child should visit a pediatric dentist by his/her first birthday.

HINT: The less buildup to any dental visit, the better. Inform your child about the visit and let him/her know the dentist and his staff will explain the routine and answer any questions.

HINT: Refrain from using words that might create unnecessary anxiety, such as needle, pull, drill or hurt. The office makes a practice of using more kid-friendly terms that convey the same message.

HINT: If your child is over the age of 3, we ask that you allow him/her to accompany our staff through the dental experience so that we may have his/her undivided attention. Studies and experience have shown that most children over the age of 3 react more positively when allowed to experience the visit on their own and in an environment designed especially for children.

Prior to visiting our office for the first time, please review, print and sign the new patient forms.
