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 son or daughter 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 the dental and medical history forms, and take X-rays of his or her teeth and mouth. Then Dr. Cruz or Dr. DeSantis 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.
If your first visit is for a cleaning, one of our hygienists will clean and polish your child’s teeth, and Dr.Cruz will 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 every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings 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 can last between 20 and 40 minutes.
