Office Visits

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 we provide the best care possible.

Your first visit is all about your child: his or her comfort, happiness, and oral health

During your child’s first visit, we will review medical and dental history, indroduce your child to the sights and sounds of a dental office, and make preventive care recommendations.  Dr. Irma or Dr. Giancarlo will complete an exam after plaque is removed from the teeth.  Radiographs (X-rays) may be recommended so that an accurate assessment of oral health can be made. After the exam, one of our dentists will discuss the exam findings, create an individualized treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have.

Bring your child’s smile, but also remember to bring these with you to that 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 every six months for regular preventive care appointments to keep their teeth and gums healthy.

We understand your family has a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing for a dental visit, please remember an appointment usually lasts between 40 and 60 minutes.
