Office Visits

Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high quality dental care. We understand that your child may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to children's needs and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing you with the best care possible.

Your first visit is all about your child mdash; their comfort, happiness, and health.

During your child's first visit, we will:

  • Review dental and medical history forms
  • Take X-rays of their teeth and mouth
  • Clean and polish your child's teeth, checking teeth and gums for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis

After the checkup and teeth cleaning are complete, the doctor will meet with you and your child to discuss X-rays, help create an individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!

The American Dental Association recommends that children visit the dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep their teeth and gums healthy.

We understand that your family has a busy schedule, so when you're preparing for a dental visit, please remember that an appointment can last between 20 to 40 minutes.

Cancellations and Missed Appointments

It is important to maintain all scheduled appointments. Considerable time is spent in the preparation of every dental appointment.

Missed appointments (broken appointment)

A missed or broken appointment is defined as any scheduled appointment whereby the patient is not present for the time allocated to them whereby no attempt was made to contact the office to either cancel or re-schedule. Our office policy regarding missed or broken appointments is as follows.

The first missed or broken appointment per calendar year will be forgiven and re-scheduled with no consequences. All other missed or broken appointments in that same calendar year will be billed as follows a $40.00 fee.
