If you have never been to our offices before, we would love to welcome you to the Vital Smiles family. We want your children to have positive experiences with their dental visits. As a parent, you play an important role in how your children react to dental exams. So here are a couple of helpful kid-friendly tips to keep in mind when you schedule your first visit:
- Try scheduling appointments during times of day when your kids are the most well-rested.
- Reassure them if they are anxious.
- Use fun, kid-friendly words to describe what will happen during the visit.
- Let them know that we have games for them to play in the office (while you as the parent fill out all the “fun” paperwork!).
When it’s time for your child’s appointment, our dental staff will greet both of you before taking him or her into the office. We will walk your child through each step as it happens. Moms and dads, you can watch cleaning appointments from the observation area!
After the cleaning and exam, our team members will speak with you regarding your child’s oral health. The dentist will answer any questions you may have about dental hygiene or any issues your child has been experiencing. We will also let you know if any follow up procedures are recommended, either immediately or in the future.
One final word from Franchesca, one of our parents: “I’ve been bringing my son for four years and my experience has always been great. I love the treatment they give my son.”
