Your Child’s First Visit

 

When your child first arrives at our office with you, we want to do everything we can to give your child a positive experience to build on. Pediatric Dentistry has undergone tremendous changes in the past several years. These changes have most definitely been for the better. Still, many parents may have some apprehensions for their child or misconceptions based on their past experiences. It is important to us to address your concerns as well as put your child at ease during your first visit.

 

No matter what your experience has been, this is an opportunity to help your child to "get off on the right foot". When talking to your child, treat the future visit in a positive excited fashion. Be honest with your child, but be careful not to alarm a child with discomforting thoughts if you have not yet learned about our special approach. Feel free to visit our office before your child's appointment if

you wish.

Pediatric Dentistry is the specialty recognized by the American Dental Association which encompasses comprehensive dental care for all children, from infancy through adolescence.

A children's dental specialist like Dr. Jeremy is a practitioner who, after becoming a general dentist (often called a family dentist), has completed an additional two years of post-doctoral training in the recognition and treatment of children’s dental and orthodontic problems.

 

Specialty education includes child psychology, behavior guidance, preventive techniques, restorative dentistry, interceptive and comprehensive care (braces), and the treatment of handicapped or chronically ill children.

 

A pediatric dentist is the only dentist completely qualified in delivering comprehensive children’s dental care.
