Your child's first visit

Helping Your Child Prepare for Their First Visit to Our Office

Talk to your child about how awesome their visit will be!

Remember that your little one doesn’t harbor any ill will toward the dentist — don’t assume that getting your child into the dentist’s chair will involve any negative emotions. They don’t know what to expect, so simply walk them through the process of a routine dental appointment. Speak with a tone of enthusiasm and excitement. If unfamiliar spaces make your child feel a bit nervous, you can check out our photo galleries and show them what to expect!

Decide together whether you’ll join your child during their visit.

Younger children will likely want their parents to accompany them to the operatory. If your child prefers, you can even hold them in your lap throughout their appointment. Older kids and teenagers may want to be on their own for their exam and cleaning, and we leave this choice up to you! Discuss these details with your child beforehand so you both know what to expect.

Come early to enjoy the office.

Our office's three locations - Grants Pass, Medford, and Ashland - were designed with your child’s comfort and enjoyment in mind. Let your kiddo play and explore in the lobby filled with toys while you sit back and relax with a cup of coffee from our beverage station. Our offices are equipped with everything you need to foster positive memories with your little one at the dentist
