First Visit Expectations
If you’re like most patients, you appreciate being informed before arriving at the dentist. Below is an overview of what you can expect during your first visit to Eastside Kids Dentistry.
Let’s get to know each other
Your child’s first visit is not only about our team getting to know them, but also about you and your child getting to know our team.
At Eastside Kids Dentistry, we encourage you and your child to ask questions, express your concerns, and share with us anything you want us to know to help make their care as individual as they are.
Part of getting to know you and providing safe, personalized support involves reviewing their medical history. Certain medical conditions and medications and can influence treatment protocols – so you will be asked to provide a list of any medications and their dosages (including vitamins and supplements) that your child may be taking.
We will gently examine your child's teeth and gum tissue and make sure their jaw and bite are developing properly. We pride ourselves on fostering a warm, inviting atmosphere and do all we can to make your child’s first visit a pleasant and positive experience.
Once your child’s entire exam and cleaning are complete, Dr. Lee will talk with you about his findings. If any treatment is needed, you and Dr. Lee can create a healthy, effective treatment plan that best meets your child’s dental and personal requirements. We can prioritize and stagger their treatments to give your child a smile they deserve in a time frame you can afford.
Finally, we want you to know we will go above and beyond to make your child feel relaxed and safe. Not only is their physical comfort important to us, but their emotional comfort is as well.
