The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children be seen at 12 months of age. This first appointment will introduce you and your child to the office and we will provide additional information on diet, oral hygiene and allow us to answer any questions you may have.
When you arrive for your child’s first visit, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms that will allow us to begin your child’s dental treatment. We will ask you to fill out several forms that will get you acquainted with our office. It may be more convenient for you to download the New Patient Forms from this website and bring them with you to the appointment. It is also important for you to bring your insurance information with you so we can properly submit your claim for you.
The initial appointment will last approximately one hour. Oral hygiene instructions will be provided along with suggestions to help you care for your child’s teeth. In most cases, a cleaning, fluoride treatment and possibly X-rays will be provided, along with an evaluation that will outline any existing dental problems and proposed treatment.
