We are so happy you to have you join our dental family! It is important to us that we make your first visit as positive and enjoyable as possible for your whole family. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable as you become familiar with the Happy Kids family of staff and doctors. A pleasant, comfortable (and maybe even FUN!) first visit helps to builds trust and put our patients at ease. Whether your child is 0 or 18, we want to establish a relationship that will alleviate any anxiety while educating them on the importance of oral health and regular dental visits.

We encourage parents not make a big deal out of the visit and refrain from using any words that could cause unnecessary fear, such as “needle” or “drill.” We are experienced in dealing with patients with anxiety and can explain treatment procedures in a positive and pleasant manner to avoid any anxious or negative feelings toward dentistry.
We will record the child’s dental and medical history, complete a comprehensive examination and discuss any findings with you. We will also review the importance of maintaining a good dental health program with you and your child to ensure a healthy and beautiful smile for life!

Parents should take their children to the dentist regularly, beginning with the sighting of their first tooth. At that time, the dentist can make a personalized plan for your child’s brushing, flossing, and other treatments. These home treatments, when added to regular dental visits and a balanced diet, will help give your child a lifetime of healthy habits.
