Your First Visit at Newtown Dentistry for Kids
Newtown Dentistry for Kids aligns itself with the current recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry on the importance of establishing a “dental home” by the age of one. A “dental home” is defined as the ongoing relationship between the dentist and the patient, which includes all aspects of oral health care in a comprehensive and family oriented way. We offer a loving environment for your child to experience the dentist, which will encourage a lifelong commitment to a healthy smile.
Your first visit with Dr. Chris and the team at Newtown Dentistry for Kids will be like no other! Make sure to arrive early, so you can experience our indoor park complete with a life-size treehouse for the kids to climb and play. We provide registration forms online that can be filled out at your convenience prior to your visit. Dr. Chris is also known as “the Purple Dentist” for reasons you’ll find out when you walk through the door. We encourage the kids wear purple to their visit for extra fun and prizes (if you don’t have purple, blue and red counts too).
We will start your visit with a guided tour through our office, which will allow you and your child to see and explore all we have to offer. Next your child will jump in the chair where they will get to play dentist, as we employ a “show, tell, do” method that serves to familiarize them with every step of the visit in a fun and interactive way. Our passionate team works hard to settle any fears, ensuring even the youngest of children become acclimated to their new environment very quickly and can’t wait for their next visit with us.
During the visit we utilize the latest in technology, which includes digital x-rays offering the lowest doses of radiation and intra-oral cameras that allow you and your child to see what we see. We have also implemented a strong preventive program that has led to a 40 percent reduction in tooth decay in our patients, one of our greatest accomplishments!!
We look forward to welcoming you and your family to your new dental home and are excited about working together to create healthy smiles that will last a lifetime!
