What do I need to bring to my appointment?
+
Always bring your current insurance card and photo ID and the date of birth and phone number of the patient being treated.
What do I do if my child is afraid of the dentist?
+
Our experienced staff is used to working with children and will do everything they can to make your visit pleasant and stress-free. To prepare your child for their visit, remind them that the dentist is there to help keep them safe, and that you will be with them. If your child likes to play pretend, help them imagine a visit to the dentist by leaning back in a chair and practicing opening their mouth. Look for books and videos featuring your child’s favorite characters visiting the dentist, or allow them to bring a treasured toy along to their visit for comfort. Be a good role model for your child; don’t talk negatively about the dentist and demonstrate good oral hygiene.
What will happen during my child’s visit?
+
Your child’s visit will be similar to one of your own. The dentist and hygienists will take special care to explain the process to you and your child and make sure everyone is comfortable. At the end, a staff member will make sure that you and your child understand how to continue caring for their oral health in the future.
How can I find out what my visit will cost?
+
Call our office to better understand the amount that will you be responsible to pay for your visit. Insurance will help reduce the cost of your visit; our staff can help you understand what your policy covers. If you don’t have insurance, talk to our staff about payment plans and other assistance.
Will I be allowed in the room during my child’s appointment?
+
Most of the time, parents remain with their child for the entirety of their visit, although sometimes it is less distracting for the child if the parent waits outside at reception. Talk to our staff if you need help deciding what is best for your child.
