May I stay with my child while they are being treated?
Absolutely – parents are welcome to stay with their children during their appointment. We actually encourage parents to join their children for the initial visit to see the office and meet the full team.
After the first visit, many older children, and those who have been to the dentist many times may prefer to come into the office alone. We love to see their confidence at their dental visit, and actually have found it often leads to more cooperation & collaboration between the dentist and child. This allows our doctors and staff to engage your child better one-on-one, building trust and rapport while having fun. If your child comes in alone, we’ll keep you in the loop and you’ll always be part of all decision making. We also send every child out with a fun individual report card reflecting what was discussed and the status of their dental health.
If your child is very young or has special needs, we’re excited to have you join us for every appointment.
We ask that siblings, or other children not being treated stay in the reception area (or the car) with a supervising adult.
