Your Child's First Visit

Congratulations on making a first appointment for your child. We're sure you'll be glad you decided to bring them to a specialist in dentistry for children.

Our office was designed with children in mind. From our children's play area within the reception room to the video game arcade, our beautiful new office radiates a warm and friendly atmosphere that helps dispel the normal fears your child may have about any new experience such as going to the dentist for the first time.

In preparation for your child's first visit, here are a few suggestions. First of all, if your child seems somewhat apprehensive about the first visit... don't try to guess what will happen when they come to see us. We prefer to make all the explanations ourselves as each visit a child has here should be a learning experience. The best way for a child to learn is by direct communication with us.

Also, if your child needs to return to the office for dental treatment, we will probably ask that you make the return appointment in the morning. We find that this is the time of day when children are freshest, most alert, and most likely to be accepting of dental treatment. Of course, this may mean missing some school, but we try never to make an appointment last longer than an hour or so, and we do have school excuse slips if you need them.

If you have any concerns about our office in general or if we can help you in any way before the visit, please give us a call at 561-483-9334 or e-mail us at [email protected]. Our Boca Raton Gentle Dentistry staff will be happy to help you.

We look forward to meeting you and your child for your first appointment!
