Pediatric Dentistry

Dear Parents,

We are looking forward to your first visit with us and would like to thank you for choosing our office to care for your child's dental needs. We have reserved your appointment time especially for your child so that we may welcome them, provide a thorough dental examination and cleaning and answer any questions that you or your child may have.

Children are naturally curious and may ask you a lot of questions about what to expect at their dental visit. It is important to ensure that each visit to the dentist is nothing to fear… even if you have your own fears about visiting the dentist. Explain to them that the doctor is going to count their teeth and clean them with a special "ticklebrush." They may even need to have "special pictures" taken so the dentist can see inside their teeth.

It is important not to use negative words. Even saying, "Don't worry, it won't hurt" may give them a negative image. Try to keep the information positive. Explain to them that you will be in the room with them while they have their teeth cleaned. If they know that you are relaxed and positive about this experience it will help them to feel relaxed and positive too. Our doctors and staff members will answer any questions at your first visit that you are unsure how to answer.

For your child's first visit and to save time on the day of your appointment, please download, print, fill out and bring these forms with you:

Our desire is to make you and your child as relaxed and as comfortable as possible so that we can build a relationship and a smile that will last a lifetime.
We look forward to meeting you and your family.

Mary George, D.M.D.
Gina Sajnani, D.M.D.
