What to Expect?

Each visit is personalized for each patient. Before the visit, we have an initial phone call to get to know you and your child a little better. This allows us to personalize your visit and let you know exactly what to expect.

Once you’re here, you’ll be greeted with a friendly smile and a fun office atmosphere. We’ll walk you through the process before we even begin and answer any questions you or your child may have.

‘‘We're very fortunate to have such a wonderful pediatric dentist in our small town. It's very inviting with the colorful paintings and kid-friendly atmosphere. The staff is very kind and patient. They make my son feel very comfortable, and going to the dentist is always a positive experience for him.’’

FAQs: Pediatric Dentistry

Get your questions answered by our board-certified specialist.

  • What does a pediatric dentist do?

    A pediatric dentist helps children, from infants to teens, maintain their oral health through the different stages of childhood and development.

    In addition to studying general dentistry, a pediatric dentist receives additional schooling and training in dental care for children and special needs individuals. The result is a gentler experience for patients with a focus on teaching patients how to properly care for their teeth.

  • At what age should a child begin seeing a pediatric dentist?

    The ADA (American Dental Association)…Opens a new window to the ADA website… and the AAPD (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry)…Opens a new window to the APD website… recommend that a child’s first dental visit should be completed within six months after the first tooth appears, but this shouldn’t be later than the first birthday.

    Early dentist check-ups can help ensure your child’s teeth are healthy and will also help teach your child to maintain great dental habits as he or she gets older.

  • What is this going to cost? / Is a pediatric dentist more expensive?

    The cost of a pediatric dentist visit may be similar to the cost of visiting a general dentist, but this depends on the treatment and your insurance coverage. To find out about insurance coverage and payment options, please contact us today.

    Our dental office bills most dental insurance providers and offers multiple payment options.

  • How often should children see the dentist?

    Children should visit the dentist twice a year (every six months) for regular cleanings and exams or as recommended by their dentist.

    Preventative dental care helps patients keep their smiles healthy and beautiful, and any problems caught early are much easier (and less expensive) to fix.

  • Will this hurt? / What happens if I don't pursue treatment?

    Every dental treatment is completed using the latest techniques and technology to help ensure a comfortable procedure. For patients who are unable to tolerate treatment in a traditional office setting, we offer treatment under general anesthesia.

    If dental problems are ignored, they may get worse and become painful. For example, early tooth decay may lead to a larger cavity if left untreated, so please maintain regular dental cleanings and exams for optimal oral health.

  • When can we get scheduled?
