Timing matters. Choose a time when your child will be most rested and cooperative - avoid naptime. Feed your little one before coming in because the last thing you want is to have a tired, hungry child on your hands.

Talk to your child about the first visit in a positive way. Read books, role-play, and build up excitement before the big day. If your child is anxious, let us know. We’ll do everything we can to create a magical experience.

Download the new patient forms and fill them out at home. Bring along insurance cards, dental records, medical history, and current medications. That way, you can focus your attention on your child’s dental care needs.
