First Visit

The beach is a place where kids can play and parents can relax. Here at our “beach”, there is plenty of entertainment and fun for your child to help them feel comfortable and welcome. We will “tell, show, and do” as we walk them through each step of the visit.

You may accompany your child throughout the first visit. During this visit, we will build rapport with age-appropriate communication in a gentle and welcoming way as we have fun in accomplishing the purpose of the visit.

During future visits, each child is treated as an individual. Certain kids do best when parents are with them. Others do best when parents aren’t present, and the child can discover and gain confidence from their own interactions. We will provide an experience tailored for your child.

After performing an exam (“counting teeth”), taking radiographs (“pictures”), cleaning the teeth, and applying fluoride if needed (“painting teeth”), we will discuss with you our findings from the exam. We’ll also discuss any treatment needs and provide tailored home care recommendations in a way that will put you at ease and answer your questions.

Children receive prizes as positive reinforcement of their good experience!

Along with providing good oral health care, our goal is that kids feel they are in a happy place where they feel comfortable, loved, and safe. Positive attitudes toward good oral health are promoted from the time you step through our door.
