History And Important Information

Your child’s first exam will be a comprehensive exam to evaluate your child’s overall oral health. This exam involves a thorough review of their health history. At this appointment your child will have an age appropriate cleaning. The doctor will also diagnose any oral health issues that may require treatment.

Dental X-Ray

The American Dental Association states the following: Radiation exposure associated with dentistry represents a minor contribution to the total exposure from all sources, including natural and man-made. This means that dental x-rays are safe.

All x-rays in our office are digital which are 70% less radiation than conventional film x-rays. X-rays will be needed at most exams for our dentist to evaluate your child’s oral health. (Bone & tooth structure under the gums)


We don’t believe in any surprises before or after any exams. We will always keep you informed of how treatment appointments will need to be scheduled. We will always inform you of what your financial obligations will be so you can make educated decisions. We will always remind you of your appointments and any pre-appointment preparation.


The goal of our dental services is to monitor dental growth and instill best practices in children, ensuring they care for their teeth throughout life. So, we will schedule your child for an Exam and Cleaning every 6 months to monitor their dental growth.
For more information about dental exams give us a call and one of our friendly office staff will assist you with any questions.
