Resources for New and Existing Patients
When you come to Happy Chompers Pediatric Dentistry, our goal is to make your life as easy as possible while we give your child the personalized dental care they deserve. From check-in to checkout, Dr. A and our team will treat you like members of the family, and we’ll always go the extra mile to ensure you and your little one feel completely comfortable. To help you be prepared for your child’s first visit, we’ve included some helpful information below. After you’ve read over it, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We can’t wait to meet you both!
Your First Visit
After you schedule your child’s appointment, we’ll send you a welcome letter expressing how excited we are to meet them. We recommend showing this to your child, as this can help curtail any lingering nerves. Once you’re in our dental office, your child will spend less than five minutes in our waiting area before they’re brought to the back. You’ll be able to remain with your child depending on their age and needs. Once you have both met Dr. A, your child will have some X-rays taken, receive an oral exam, and a hygienist will perform a cleaning if needed. From there, Dr. A will share his observations with you, recommend any treatments that might be needed, and answer all of your questions.
If you have dental insurance (including Medicaid), we’ll take it, and our knowledgeable team will help you get the most out of your benefits whenever your child comes to see us. We’ll even file your claims for you so you just have to sit back, relax, and save. And, if you ever have any questions about your coverage, we’ll be happy to answer those, too. To learn a little more about using your insurance with us, we recommend taking a moment to read our short guide, which you’ll find by clicking the link below.
If you currently don’t have dental insurance, don’t worry, our dental office has another option to make your child’s care easily affordable. We’re partnered with CareCredit, a third-party financier that provides low-to-no interest payment plans. You can look over their different plans and even sign up for one through our website in just a few minutes. Already, this approach has helped countless parents fit their child’s dental visits easily into their family budget.
