The First Visit
What To Expect
Getting to know our patients and their families is one of our favorite things. And while it is fun, it is also a very important part of making sure our dental care is tailored to meet your child’s very individual needs.
When you first come in, you will be greeted warmly and taken to a consultation room to be introduced to your doctor. The doctor will talk to your child first. Children really respond to the warm but respectful manner of our doctors. These doctors know that connecting with kids and earning their trust starts with attention, time and praise.
Once your child feels comfortable with the doctor, he or she will spend time talking with you, going over your child’s health history and answering any questions you have. This time with you is just as important as the time we spend with your child. After all, you are the one who helps and encourages your child toward better dental health and hygiene.
After you have met with the doctor, it is time to count teeth, take intra-oral camera images, x-rays and to perform the oral exam. Kids and parents alike are fascinated by the images provided by the intra-oral camera screening. We use a tiny digital camera to explore every detail of your child’s mouth while projecting amazingly detailed, enlarged images on a chair-side screen. Kids love to see what their teeth look like magnified, and it is a great educational tool.
After the discussion, screening and checking, your child has definitely earned a special present from the coveted toy box. Then all we have to do is schedule your next visit!
It’s a big first step on your child’s amazing journey to a lifetime of smiles!
