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 your child feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible.
Your first visit is all about your child: his or her comfort, happiness, and health
During your child’s first visit, we will review his or her dental and medical history forms, and take X-rays of the teeth and mouth. Then Dr. Rivas-Morello will meet with you and your child to discuss the X-rays, help create an individual treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have.
At your child’s next visit, one of our hygienists will clean and polish the teeth, and inspect for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your child’s first appointment
- Your completed patient information form
- Your insurance card
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends that children visit the dentist by their first birthday. It is important that your child’s newly erupted teeth (which appear between six and 12 months of age) receive dental care and benefit from proper oral hygiene habits right from the beginning.
We understand your family has a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing for a visit, please remember that an appointment can last between 20 and 40 minutes.
