What to Expect at Your First Appointment with Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics
We want your child’s first appointment with us to be as stress-free as possible. We specialize in working with both healthy children and those who have complex medical, mental, social and physical challenges, so we will adapt our approach to what works best with your child.
Making an Appointment with Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics
We want it to be easy for you to get the care you or your child needs. You can contact us directly to schedule an appointment, or your pediatrician / provider can refer you to our division. We provide dental care at two locations — the Burnet Campus and the Fairfield clinic. We provide orthodontic care at the Burnet Campus.
Dentistry is making a change to our walk in clinic. Unscheduled emergency appointments will be limited to patients with dental trauma that require immediate attention, uncontrolled bleeding, and facial swelling.For additional information about unscheduled emergency visits, please see FAQ (If my dentist is not available, will you see my child for a dental emergency?) below.
Please schedule appointments for any dental concerns that do not require immediate attention by contacting us.
On the Day of Your Visit to Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics
Arriving for Your Appointment
Please arrive at the clinic 30 minutes ahead of time — 15 minutes to park and walk from the parking garage (if you are visiting us at the Burnet Campus), and 15 minutes to check in at our front desk.
At Your Appointment
We will take our time with your child, walking them through every step and making sure they are comfortable with our approach to their dental and orthodontic needs. We focus on communication and explaining what we need to do with both the patient and their caregiver, so there are no surprises.
