Emergency Info

Emergency appointments during office hours will be accommodated to the best of our ability. After hours emergency care will be available by calling the office to be connected with Dr. Suzanne who will give you further information regarding your child’s particular situation.

First Visit

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child’s first dental appointment should be scheduled six months after the eruption of their first tooth or by the child’s first birthday. At our office, the first visit is very important. We will use this appointment to get you acquainted with our office and discuss with you recommendations for your child’s future dental care. We will continue to see your child every six months for routine care. It is important to identify a dental home for your child. This provides you with a familiar place to go should your child have a dental emergency and allows us to monitor your child as they grow and develop.

At the first appointment, we encourage a parent to follow with their child. You and your child can get acquainted with the staff, the office, and how our staff works together. Any questions or concerns you have will certainly be addressed. At following appointments, we encourage your child to accompany a staff member through the appointment to allow us to form a bond with your child and establish a trusting relationship.

There are several things you can do to prepare your child for their first dental appointment to help make it a success. We strive to make your child’s experience a pleasant one and a little preparation can only aid us. The most important thing you can do is to talk positively about the dentist. Even if you are not a fan, do not let your child know that. We use child friendly terminology in our office. We do not use words like “shot”, “needle”, “drill”, “pain” or “hurt”. We make teeth sleepy with sleepy bubbles, wash out sugar bugs, and avoid discomfort as much as possible.

The first appointment will consist of an exam when the dentist will count their teeth and check their gums and tissues. They will have their teeth polished and flossed. If x-rays are indicated, they will also be taken. Proper brushing and flossing will be reviewed as well to ensure good home care.
