It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to take care of your child. We look forward to sharing with you what we know about creating optimal dental health for growing children. Our practice has evolved with the guidance given us by many children. We also take pride in keeping current with the latest research and applying that knowledge to providing the best possible care for our patients. You will no doubt notice many things we do differently than when you were a child or than what you currently experience in your own dentist's office. We encourage questions since we believe that is how we can best address your concerns about long range dental health.
The first visit to the office is an orientation to dentistry for the children and an opportunity to meet us. We will introduce the children to some basic thoughts about the health of their teeth. There will also be some interesting tips here for parents about helping their children clean their teeth. We will give the children a hands on tour of the office with the opportunity to push buttons, flip levers, ride the chair, squirt the water hoses, etc. This is all voluntary and the more timid children may look more than interact. We want it to be a fun and demystifying experience for the children. Your child will receive a thorough examination by Dr. Ryan, and an in depth discussion of our dental health goals for your child, focusing on the identified areas of concern. This will be a fun appointment for the two of you.
If you have any questions about the office, feel comfortable calling. You might also jot your questions down and bring them to the appointment.
We look forward to seeing you. Have a wonderful day,
Jennifer Ryan, DDS MS
