We Make Sure That Dentistry Doesn’t Feel Like a Chore

Some children’s dentists start little ones off with the wrong impressions of what it means to visit the dental office, which can create dental fear that keeps them from taking care of their smiles as adults. At Healthy Kids Dentistry, we’re patient, organized, and friendly—helping children have positive visits that inspire them to never stop caring for their smiles. If you’re ready to schedule an appointment with our team, don’t hesitate to give us a call and review the helpful information on this page.


Your Child’s First Visit

If your child’s first visit with us is a checkup and cleaning, you can expect it to last for about an hour, depending on their age and the unique oral situation they’re in. One of our dentists will conduct a thorough examination of their teeth and gums and review their X-rays, making sure that there are no existing oral health issues that need to be treated. Before they leave, our dental hygienist will thoroughly clear away all plaque and tartar from the surface of their teeth, finishing their visit off by polishing their teeth and placing a fluoridated gel onto them.

New Patient Forms

We ask that all of our new patients please be prepared for their appointment by filling out the forms before their visit. You can find them located below. If you have any questions or need help accessing them, please contact our team.
