Fast Facts For A First Visit

We’re calm and take time to get to know your child so they feel welcome and safe. Enjoying toys and movies helps make your child’s experience as positive as possible. A child who feels relaxed and comfortable at the dentist will develop healthy and positive perceptions of dental care that will last a lifetime.

The first visit helps create your child’s dental home. For any future dental needs or emergencies, you already have an established dentist you and your child know and trust.

At their first visit, your child gets to know the dentist and the office setting. The dentist conducts a preliminary exam of your child’s teeth. It’s painless and relaxed.
For most kids, less is more. If your child is old enough, let them know they’ll be visiting the dentist, who helps keep their mouth healthy. Keep it casual.
Around your child, skip words that might cause unnecessary fear, such as needle, pull, drill, or hurt. We’re pros at explaining procedures to kids in words that are pleasant and non-frightening.
We have an open-door policy! Parents are welcome and encouraged to accompany their child in all areas of our office and treatment rooms (no cell use, please). During treatment, please be a silent observer and allow us to establish communication and trust with your child.
Dr. Mudd and her team know kids and work with them exclusively. They’re trained to put children at ease and minimize discomfort.
Toddlers and preschoolers do best at morning appointments, when they’re rested and up for a less familiar experience. If your school-aged child has significant treatment needs, a morning appointment serves them well. Schools often excuse the absence with a note from the dentist, which we’re happy to write.

Your child’s appointment is our priority. We understand that unexpected situations may arise, and we’re here to accommodate you. If you need to reschedule due to an emergency or illness, just let us know at least 24 hours in advance, and we’ll find a new time that suits you.

While we aim to keep appointments on schedule, sometimes emergencies happen, and our timetable might shift to prioritize urgent cases. If we anticipate a delay, we’ll do our best to inform you promptly, giving you the chance to adjust your plans if needed. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause during your visit, and rest assured, we’ll extend the same courtesy to you if your child requires urgent attention.

Please keep our office number handy in case you’re running late. If you’re more than 15 minutes behind schedule, we may need to reschedule your appointment to ensure everyone receives timely care.

Remember, if you can’t make your appointment, kindly notify us at least 24 hours beforehand so we can offer the slot to another family. Please understand that repeated cancellations without notice may result in a $50 deposit requirement for future appointments.

Your cooperation ensures smooth scheduling for all our families. Thank you for entrusting us with your child’s care.
