Parents Resources

Thank you for choosing our office for your child’s dental needs. Our dentists and the entire Team specialize in pediatric dentistry. We strive to provide a positive dental experience for you and your child. Great dental hygiene starts with routine cleanings for your child with a pediatric dentist.

The child’s first visit is important for several reasons. In many instances, it is the child’s first experience with dentistry; in some cases, the child has had a previous unpleasant experience. Patience and calm on your part will help ensure a successful and stress-free visit for your child. It is best if you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as “needle”, “shot”, “drill”, or “hurt”. Our office makes a practice of using words that convey the same message, but are pleasant and non-frightening to the child. By doing this, it will make the visit very positive and it allows us to establish a safe and trusting relationship.

One of our team members will reach out to each family prior to your child’s first appointment. We here at The Tooth Fairy HQ recognize that every child is different, comes into the appointment with different behaviors, styles of learning and respond to different behavioral techniques. Our team member will guide parents through a small series of questions which will help us to obtain key information about your child prior to their office visit. Knowing how to best meet each child where they are will allow us the best opportunity to create an outstanding experience specific to their expectations and needs. We will also gather information on your child’s favorite toy, Disney character or special interests so we can provide something familiar to your child at their first visit to make them feel more at ease. When your child enters our practice, we want them to feel welcome, safe and that we care about each of them personally.

“A parent or legal guardian MUST be present at every appointment, during the entire visit”.
