We want your family’s experience with ZEFF PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY to be a wonderful one, starting with your child’s first visit. We simply ask that you follow these four easy steps prior to coming in for your first visit.
1. Make an Appointment
Provide us with your contact information and we’ll give you a call to set up a specific day and time that’s convenient for you.
Note: We recommend the morning for younger children when they are more alert. However, you know your child best and we can make arrangements that suit your needs.
2. Fill Out a few forms
Click, print, read and fill out the following 3 forms: New Patient Registration, Statement of Privacy Practice and HIPPA forms. Bring these forms with you to your child’s first visit. If you would like us to bill your insurance company on your behalf, please bring your dental insurance card to your first appointment as well.
3. No preparation is usually the best preparation.
There’s no need to over prepare your child for their first visit. We encourage parents to stay positive and stress free. Children can sense anxiety, so it’s important not to use words such as hurt, shot, drill or needle to prevent your child from fearing their visit. Just tell them they’re getting a cleaning and will have sparkly teeth once we’re done! As a dental provider, we find that this is the simplest answer for parents to give prior to the visit. Once your child is at our office, let us take care of the rest. We use words that are child friendly and appropriate. Our team is trained in the Tell-Show-Do method at every visit. Come visit us and let us show you how our office shines!
4. Get directions
Lastly, grab our address and directions on the Contact Us page, so that you are able to get to our office hassle-free and on time. We have plenty of free patient parking available.
