What To Expect At Your Child’s Routine Dental Appointment

Nobody likes surprises at the dentist’s office, and we want to make every family dental visit as relaxed and efficient as possible. Knowing what to expect can help alleviate your child’s concern, and when you have information about our services, our office policies and our financial arrangements, you can be there to support your child, whether for a pediatric dental checkup in Round Rock, TX, or for a specific issue that concerns you or your child, and needs a dentist’s attention.

What To Expect When Your Child is a New Patient

If you are new in town, or looking for a caring pediatric dentist, we welcome you to become part of our office. Our new patient forms are available online, and can be printed out and brought with you, or submitted electronically. We make reviews available on our website, so you can get a sense of our office atmosphere and our dedication.

What to Expect at Checkups and Cleanings

Preventive care is the overall term for keeping your child’s smile healthy. Some preventive care is done at home on a daily basis, like brushing and flossing. Other preventive care takes place in a dental office. This includes careful removal of plaque and tartar by a member of our dental team, and time to answer questions from your or your child, and share tips on best brushing techniques. Checkups also include oral cancer screenings.

Should I Expect Dental Sealants or Fluoride Treatments

Many children do benefit from the application of dental sealants (to keep food from getting trapped in teeth) and fluoride treatments (to strengthen tooth enamel). Children do not have the coordination (and sometimes the patience) to thoroughly brush each tooth, and sealants and fluoride treatments give young teeth an extra boost to help prevent cavities.

Regular Dentist Visits Reduce the Chance of Unpleasant Smile Surprises

Knowing more about what will happen at a dental visit can put you and your family members at ease. Dental visits are important to maintain oral health, and we look forward to visits from our young patients and their families.
