For Parents

A Kid Friendly Dental Environment

Our doctors and staff are trained to meet the special needs of children. We understand that each child is unique and we will do everything we can to make your child’s dental experience a positive one. Our goal is to provide optimal dental healthcare and a lifetime of beautiful smiles. Our kid-friendly environment has toys, stuffed animals, DVD movies, and video games to help your child feel at home. We look forward to being an integral part of your child’s life. We welcome the opportunity to help your child formulate a lifetime of healthy dental habits.

Dear Parents:

The entire staff would like to welcome you to our office. We look forward to serving your children.

The information contained on our website is designed to provide you with as much information as possible about our practice, staff and policies. Most questions parents ask are answered here but we realize there may be others which may occur to you. Please do not hesitate to ask them.

We take great pride in our office and attempt to “keep on time”, be efficient, offer personalized service and provide gentle dental care. Our office is specifically dedicated to children. Children are at ease once they enter our kid-friendly environment where toys and games abound.

Because we realize your time is extremely valuable, it is important that you understand our procedures vary in length of chair time from a few minutes to two (2) hours. On your child’s first appointment he/she will receive a thorough examination, necessary x-rays, cleaning, fluoride and diagnosis of their dental needs. Our findings are discussed in detail.

In the event you need to reschedule your child’s appointment, we request 24 hour notice to reserve the time for another patient or attend to an emergency. Please understand ALL children in our practice attend school and most of our parents work. Although we take into account both work and school, it may be necessary to schedule morning appointments.

We look forward to meeting you and your family.

Thank you.
