New Patient Information

Welcome to Children & Teen Dental

Your first visit is very important. A little planning ahead can save you a lot of time.

At Children & Teen Dental, our goal is to provide high-quality pediatric dentistry and orthodontic care in a fun, child-friendly environment. Your children are special, and that calls for exceptional care.

Many children’s first experience with a dentist happens at an office focused on adult care. Dental care in this environment is often intimidating and frightening for kids. This first impression can create anxiety and avoidance of the dentist that will last a lifetime.

Children & Teen Dental takes time to talk to each child, providing a pleasant dental experience that includes individual attention for each child’s needs and personality, including those of special needs children. We like to explain what we do in gentle, kid-friendly terms to help children relax and enjoy their dental visit – which might include singing, counting and other distraction techniques. We’re dedicated to making visits to the dentist fun and effective for both kids and parents.

What to expect on your first visit

We normally call to remind you of your appointment two days prior. It is important that you call us back to confirm the appointment.
