Pediatric Dentistry First Visit
- Thank you for allowing us to take care of your child's/children's oral healthcare. The first visit is a time where you and your child can become familiar with Dr. Taiym, Dr. Kamali and the entire team. WE thank you again and welcome! Please arrive to your child's appointment 10 minutes early to start filling out your child's new patient information. We utilize a computer kiosk to to enter new patient information.
- If your child is over the age of 5, we ask that you allow him/her to accompany our staff through the dental experience so that we may have his/her undivided attention. Studies and experience have shown that most children over the age of 3 react more positively when allowed to experience the visit on their own and in an environment designed especially for children
- More Helpful Information:
Your child should visit a pediatric dentist by his/her first birthday. The less buildup to any dental visit, the better. Inform your child about the visit and let him/her know the dentist and the staff will explain the routine and answer any questions. Refrain from using words that might create unnecessary anxiety, such as needle, pull, drill or hurt. The office makes a practice of using more kid-friendly terms that convey the same message.
