Periodic preventive recall appointments will ordinarily be recommended twice each year, and will include an examination, preventive dental education, and cleaning and fluoride treatment.

We take only those X-rays necessary to detect cavities, infections in the bone, and the position and location of unerupted teeth. Normally a panoramic (full mouth) set of X-rays is taken at age six or when the permanent teeth begin to erupt. Our X-ray policy and standards conform to those recommended by the American Dental Association and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

 

Our office has switched to digital X-rays. This new technology enables the practice to provide quality radiographs at reduced settings. Digital radiography also allows us to process X-rays without the chemical waste that is a byproduct of conventional X-ray developing.

We prefer to see younger patients in the morning as they are usually most cooperative when they are fresh and wide awake. 

For older children, appointments may be necessary during school hours. We will be happy to provide a written excuse for the school or for your employer.  

If you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment, please phone us at least one day in advance so we may offer the time to another patient. We do charge those who repeatedly miss appointments.  

We make every effort to maintain our appointment schedule, and generally do. Occasionally we treat emergencies (such as traumatic injuries) which demand immediate attention. Please understand that you would wish us to treat your child immediately in a similar situation.
