Our experienced pediatric dental team is dedicated to providing your child with the personalized, gentle care that he/she deserves. We strive to create a child-friendly environment where children feel comfortable and excited to learn how to care for their teeth. We provide dental care for infants, children, and adolescents. Although, we welcome the child's first visit at any age, we highly recommend your child's first dental visit to be at one year old.
At our office, your child will experience all that modern dentistry has to offer, including a comprehensive list of preventative dental services to meet the individual need of each child. Our goal is to assist each child in a kind and caring manner so that he/she begins healthy habits that will maintain a beautiful smile for a life time.
How are Appointments Scheduled?
The office attempts to schedule appointments at your convenience and when time is available. You can schedule an appointment by calling our office at 773-584-1622. We recommend that primary students ranging for preschool through sixth grade should schedule their appointments in the morning. Students at that age are more alert in the morning, which allows us to work more efficiently with the child for their comfort. Dental appointments are an excused absence. However, missing school can be kept to a minimum when regular dental care is maintained.
Should I Stay with My Child During the Visit?
Parents are invited back during the initial exam and at re-care appointments. This allows our doctors to discuss their findings and any treatment that may be necessary. During treatment appointments, one parent is allowed to accompany their child. We ask that you remain as a silent observer so that our doctors and staff are able to effectively communicate with your child. Research has shown that children over the age of three react more positively when permitted to experience the dental visit on their own and in an environment designed for children. As your child matures, we hope they will feel comfortable coming back by themselves. This helps to better establish your child’s trust and independence with the dentist.
