A Word to Parents

You do not need to prepare your child intensively for the appointment in advance of the first visit. Too much preparation before an appointment often has the opposite effect on children. Undergoing a positive first experience at the dentist can influence children’s view of dentistry for the rest of their lives. Parents are allowed to be present in the room at any time during the treatment to creates a certain sense of security for your child.

During future appointments, we suggest you allow your child to accompany our staff through the dental experience while you wait in the reception area. Our purpose is to gain your child's confidence and overcome apprehension, and we can usually establish a closer relationship with your child when you are not present. However, you are more than welcome to accompany your child to the treatment room.
