Slide On Into Our Office!
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

We love what people are saying!
My girls had their first visit today and they loved the office! I was unable to get my girls xrays from their previous dentist ahead of time, and one of the gals in the office ran by the other office while on her lunch break! It was a great experience from start to finish!
They definitely got two new patients today.
Thank you so much for your amazing service. No one wants to make an emergency dentist visit while away from home on a family vacation, but you all made it a very enjoyable experience. If we lived here we would definitely be back. :)
Today was the first time ever I took my 5 year old son and 2 year old daughter. Was able to get them in together. Staff was very polite and professional. They knew how to help ease my 5 yr old from getting scared. First experience went so well.
Thank you for treating all three of my kiddos so well! Makes it much easier to bring them in for checkups!
Shelly is the best! Landon loved everything about his visit and is excited to come back!
The Dentist and all support staff are consistently amazing with the care they give.
My kids love coming to this Dentist. A kid friendly and parent friendly experience.
Excellent customer service, and great with children of all ages. Would recommend to anybody.
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.
