We’re always eager to welcome new smiles into our patient family. To make sure you’re prepared for their visit, we recommend reading through the information below. It should answer most of your basic questions, but if there is anything else you’d like to know, be sure to give us a call. We can’t wait to meet both of you!
Your First Visit
After being checked in, you’ll be offered a complimentary beverage from our refreshment bar, and then you and your child will be given a brief tour of our office. You’ll both then be escorted to a treatment room where you’ll get to meet your child’s dentist. They’ll spend a few minutes chatting with you about your child’s health before performing an oral exam--your child can sit either in your lap or on the chair depending on their age. Then, their dentist will go over their observations with you, discuss any treatments they might need, and answer all of your questions.
