Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, and high-quality dental care. We understand your son or daughter may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to children’s needs, and it is our goal to make your little one feel comfortable visiting our practice while we provide the best possible care.
Your first visit is all about your child: his or her comfort, happiness, and health
During your son or daughter’s first visit, we will review the dental and medical history forms, and take X-rays of the teeth. Our hygienist will clean and polish teeth, and inspect them for early signs of gingivitis.
Then Dr. Jensen will meet with you and your youngster to discuss the X-rays, help create an individual treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have.

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends that children visit the dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep their teeth and gums healthy.
We understand your family has a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing for a dental visit, please remember your first appointment can last between 45 minutes to an hour.
All routine appointments going forward are scheduled for 45 minutes. Please plan to arrive 10 minutes prior to your first one to fill out paperwork and allow time for your child to become acclimated to the environment.
