When making your appointment please inform us of the primary reason for your visit. If your child has recently visited the dentist, let us know! It is helpful for us to have as much information in the way of your child’s past dental records or x-rays so that we can best prepare for your visit. As the release of these records require your consent, it will usually be necessary for you to request the information from your prior dentist. You can forward the information to us yourself, or give your previous dentist contact us to coordinate the transfer of these records. We welcome any information you give us! The more we know about your child and any specific arrangements or concerns you may have, the better.
