"Give me a reason to smile"

Your Child's First Visit

It is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry that children have their first dental exam around one year of age.  This allows us to work with you and your child to help them to develop great oral hygiene, to prevent cavities and to discuss habits.

When you schedule your child’s initial appointment, we will mail or email you a medical & dental history form, financial policy, insurance information and HIPPA policies.  Please complete them and bring them to the appointment.  We are very proud of our Office and will give all new patients & parents a tour.  At the initial appointment, we attempt to get to know and really understand each child.  All children are different and we try very hard to gain the confidence of every child. We prefer that children be accompanied in the treatment rooms by their parent for most visits.  For toddlers, we begin the important first visit by introducing the office environment and ourselves.  For children over three, an examination, thorough cleaning and fluoride treatment are usually performed.  Any necessary x-rays of the teeth and jaws will also be made with our fabulous digital technology.  During the examination, Dr Johnson and his Team will discuss with you the results of the examination and treatment recommendations.
