What You and Your Little One Can Expect
If your child has been seen anywhere previously, we will want to review that history before getting started. We will also want to review any medical records. Doing this will help us to better understand your child’s medical and dental needs, as well as becoming more familiar with your family as a whole. Remember, our goal is to serve your child’s needs to the best of our ability!
Next, we’ll show your family around the office in a way that your child will love. We will give them the time to become familiar with his or her surroundings, becoming comfortable and feeling at ease. Everything we are going to do will be properly explained and shown in a child-friendly manner.
We will then perform an initial examination and clean your child’s teeth. We do this to get them familiar with dental procedures. You are encouraged to remain by your child’s side during this process. Your presence will aid the process, allowing the little one to feel comforted and safe.
At the end of the examination, one of our Board Certified Pediatric Dentists will discuss with you your child’s current dental health status, preventative measures that should be taken, any treatment that may be needed, and in that event, available treatment options.
Your input is not only encouraged, but needed! This is your child, and we feel that any decisions made about your child’s oral health should be reviewed and agreed to by you with your full understanding of your options.
