When you arrive for your first visit, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms that will allow us to begin your dental treatment. We will ask you to fill out several forms that will get you acquainted with our office.

Your initial exam will last approximately one hour. Oral hygiene instructions will be provided along with suggestions to help you care for your teeth. In most cases, we will also clean your teeth on this visit and provide an evaluation that will outline your existing dental problems and proposed treatment.

In discussing dentistry with your child, PLEASE DO NOT use words that may have an unpleasant meaning such as "needle", "hurt", or "drill".  Avoid offering special  rewards for good behavior or relating any of your own dental anxieties to your child.  Every effort will be made to make the dental treatment as pleasant as possible.  Dentistry for children is a very important health service and we do everything to treat your child like we would treat one of our own.

We have designed the office so that it is warm, friendly, pleasant and inviting to our patients and their parents.  On your child's first visit you will be invited to see the entire office, meet with Dr. Curtis or Dr. Katie in a consult area and ask any questions you desire.  Children under 4 are seen by the doctor in this consult area.  This allows you to get to know the doctor, and allows him or her the opportunity to listen to your concerns, evaluate your child and discuss your child's oral health.  Children 4 and over, after having met with Dr. Curtis or Dr. Katie, will be escorted to the clinical area along with the parent.   On all visits thereafter, the parents have the discretion to remain in the reception area or to accompany the child back.  Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.

During the first visit, the head, neck, and mouth will be examined, the teeth cleaned and only necessary x-rays will be made.  If a child's mouth is to develop and grow properly, the first (primary) teeth must be healthy.  Please realize that x-rays, when necessary, enable us to thoroughly examine, diagnose and recommend proper treatment for your child.

Dr. Curtis or Dr. Katie will diagnose the case after review of the x-rays and clinical findings. Existing conditions and the proper treatment will be discussed with you. We always want to inform before we perform.  Payment is due on the date of service.

We will make every effort to make your child's first appointment with us a pleasant experience. We are dedicated to the highest standards of preventive dentistry. We sincerely appreciate your confidence in Dr. Curtis, Dr. Katie and the staff, and we look forward to seeing you and your child. If you have any questions concerning anything, always feel free to call the office at (662) 327-0995

 

Remember…

  • Bring your dental insurance card. Read over your policy and know what is covered.
  • Please arrive about 15 minutes early if you have not completed new patient paper work and health history for your child/children through the special email sent to you from our office.  If you did not receive an email from us and would like to complete your new patient information from your own device at home, please call us.  We would be happy to email it to you.
