Your first visit
The first visit to our practice will be a memorable one because we treat your child as if they were the most important person in our office — that's because they are! We call this our New Patient Experience.
To begin, you and your child are given a tour of the office and are introduced to our entire team. The treatment coordinator will then sit down with you to answer any questions you (or your child) may have.
An initial visit for your child includes any necessary X-rays, followed by a prevention visit that includes a cleaning and fluoride treatment, and oral health instruction with a hygienist. Next, the doctor examines your child and will discuss a prevention or treatment program with you to ensure the best care for your child's oral health.
The final step is with our office manager who will sit down with you and review the visit, explain office policies and procedures, and answer any questions you may have. This initial visit is an excellent opportunity for information gathering and giving. Of course, if you have any questions after you leave the office, call us any time.
