Childrens Dentistry

We would be delighted to welcome you and your children into our family of patients! We take great pride in treating our patients as if they were our own children. Dr. Waheed and our experienced staff enjoy working in an atmosphere of fun and laughter, while taking serious care of your child’s dental needs.

It is our sincere desire that you receive the best dental care available and that the experience is a pleasant one for both you and your child. We expect your child’s first visit to our office to be an experience they will enjoy and look forward to in the future.

Your Child’s First Visit

Our office recommends that your child’s first healthy-visit should be at the age of 5.You can make the first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive by telling them it will be exciting and fun. Your child should be informed of the visit and told that the dentist and staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions they may have. The less to-do concerning the visit, the better.

What Should I Tell My Child About Their First Dental Visit?

It is best if you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as “needle”, “shot”, “pull”, “drill” or “hurt”. The office makes a practice of using words that convey the same message, but are pleasant and non-frightening to the child.

What Will Happen During The First Visit With Your Dentist?

We will make a diagnosis and prescribe dental treatment based on your child’s needs and current conditions. We do not base treatment recommendations on dental insurance, third party benefits, or other limitations you may have. Our obligation is to provide the best care available for your child. Financial assistance through insurance that may be available to you is between you and your insurance company, and has no bearing on the treatment that we prescribe for your child, or the fees involved in performing that care.
