The office attempts to schedule appointments at your convenience and when time is available.
We invite you to stay with your child during the initial examination. During future appointments, we suggest you allow your child to accompany our staff through the dental experience.
Payment for professional services is due at the time dental treatment is provided. Every effort will be made to provide a treatment plan which fits your timetable and budget, and gives your child the best possible care.
If we have received all of your insurance information on the day of the appointment, we will be happy to file your claim for you.
Have You Had Your Dental Exam?
Regular dental exams help protect your oral health and general well-being. A dental exam gives your dentist a chance to provide tips on caring for your teeth and to detect any problems early — when they're most treatable.Read more
Parents often have questions about how to take care of their children's teeth. When should you start brushing? What kind of toothpaste is best? When should you go to the dentist? Knowing the answers to these questions can help you keep your kids' teeth healthy and cavity free.
Although you don't necessarily need to brush them yet, you should start cleaning your infant's teeth as soon as he gets his first tooth (and his gums even before he gets teeth). At first, you can just use a wash cloth to clean your infant's teeth. As he gets more, you can use a soft children's toothbrush.
Because there is some danger if your child gets too much fluoride, your choice of toothpaste is important.
The timing of the first visit to the dentist used to be a little controversial.
Another important topic is figuring out if your child is getting enough fluoride. Children begin to need supplemental fluoride by the age of six months.
talk to your dentist about using sealants in your school age child. A sealant is a plastic material that is applied to the teeth, hardens, and provides a barrier against plaque and other harmful substances.
You can usually begin flossing once your child's teeth are touching each other, but they likely won't be able to floss on their own until they are 8 to 10 years old.
to teaching your children the importance of regular brushing and flossing, routine visits to the dentist and a healthy diet.

A:A check-up allows your dentist to see if you have any dental problems and helps you keep your mouth healthy. Leaving problems untreated could make them more difficult to treat in the future, so it's best to deal with problems early, or, if possible, prevent them altogether.
What happens during a dental check-up?
A:At each check-up, your dentist should:
Examine your teeth, gums and mouth.
Ask about your general health and any problems you’ve had with your teeth, mouth or gums since your last visit.
Ask about, and give you advice on, your diet, smoking and alcohol use, and teeth-cleaning habits.
Discuss a date for your next visit.
How often should I have a dental check-up?
A:After your check-up, your dentist will recommend a date for your next visit. The time to your next check-up could be as short as 3 months or as long as 2 years (or up to 1 year if you're under 18).
Generally, the lower your risk of dental problems, the longer you can wait before your next check-up. So people with good oral health will probably need to attend only once every 12 to 24 months, but those with more problems will need check-ups more often.
What about dental treatments?
A:This advice is about routine check-ups only. You may have other appointments for dental treatments such as fillings, teeth cleaning (scale and polish), having a tooth taken out or emergency treatment.
If you have problems with your teeth between check-ups, contact your dental surgery to make an earlier appointment. In an emergency outside normal working hours, contact your surgery on its usual number and you will be told how to access emergency dental care.
How can I prepare my child for his first dental appointment?
A:The best preparation for your child's first visit to our office is maintaining a positive attitude. Children pick up on adults' apprehensions and if you make negative comments about trips to the dentist you can be sure that your child will fear an unpleasant experience and act accordingly. Show your child the pictures of the office and staff on the web site. Let your child know that it's important to keep his teeth and gums healthy, and that the doctor will help him do that. Remember that your pediatric dentist is specially trained to handle fears and anxiety, and our staff excels at putting children at ease during treatment.
