parent is welcome to accompany their child on the first visit. At
subsequent visits, we encourage you to allow your child to come back
alone. We are all highly experienced in helping children overcome
anxiety. Studies and experience have shown that most children over the
age of 3 react more positively when permitted to experience the dental
visit on their own and in an environment designed for children.
How are Appointments Scheduled?
office attempts to schedule appointments at your convenience and when
time is available. Preschool children should be seen in the morning
because they are fresher and we can work more slowly with the child for
their comfort. School children with a lot of work to be done should be
seen in the morning for the same reason. Dental appointments are an
excused absence. Missing school can be kept to a minimum when regular
dental care is continued. Since appointed times are reserved
exclusively for each patient we ask that you please notify our office
48 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment time if you are
unable to keep your appointment. Another patient who needs our care
could be scheduled if we have sufficient time to notify them. We
realize that unexpected things can happen, but we ask for your
assistance in this regard.
