Your child's first visit to Longmont Pediatric Dentistry involves a few special steps so that we can get to know your family. To understand what to expect, please read through this page.
Our practice is working together to realize a shared vision of uncompromising excellence in pediatric dentistry.
To fulfill this mission, we are committed to:
- Listening to our patients and their parents.
- Earn the trust and respect of patients and other dental professionals in our community.
- Exceed your expectations.
- Ensure a creative and compassionate professional environment.
- Strive for continuous improvement at all levels.
Below is a link to medical history and patient information forms. Completing these forms at home can help make sure we are able to start your child's appointment on time. If you are unable to complete at home, make sure you arrive at least 10 minutes prior to your child's appointment so you have plenty of time to complete the necessary paperwork.
What To Expect
Making sure we know if your child is covered by any dental insurance and being a few minutes early for your child's appointment will help make sure we are able to provide the best service possible. After being greeted when arriving to our office, you and your child can enjoy a few minutes relaxing in our waiting room before you and your child are brought back to our treatment areas. After familiarizing your child with our "dental tools" and equipment, we will begin their appointment. What is completed at the first appointment depends on your child's age, dental development and comfort level at the dental office. For younger children, this may simply be a dental exam (i.e. counting their teeth). Once children are a little older and more comfortable at the dental office, their first appointment may include a cleaning, fluoride treatment and dental radiographs (in addition to their exam).
