New Patient Forms

Thank you for taking the time to learn about pediatric dentistry.  We recognize that choosing your child's dentist requires careful consideration and therefore we offer the following information about our office.

We, along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recommend the first dental examination by the age one.  We plan to guide your child's dental health from the first visit through the teenage years with the latest dental products and techniques proven by research.

Before the first visit with Dr. Trotter, we encourage you to talk with your child about the positive aspects of dentistry.  Help your child feel comfortable by expressing good feelings about dental visits as a necessary part of staying healthy.  By using phrases like "gentle and careful" instead of "won't hurt you" when describing their exam, your child will be more relaxed during their exam.

Parents are encouraged to stay with their child throughout the treatment and siblings are welcome to watch the exam and cleaning.

Dr. Trotter feels strongly that it is not beneficial to attempt dental treatment while your child is anxious.  We offer age appropriate explanations, nitrous oxide, and various levels of conscious sedation to enhance your child's comfort during dental procedures.

Pediatric dentistry is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the oral health and unique needs of young people, and requires two to three years of additional training.  This specialized program of study and hands-on experience prepares pediatric dentists to meet the unique needs of infants and children.

Establishing us as your child's "Dental Home" provides an opportunity to implement preventive dental health habits that can keep a child free from dental/oral disease.  We focus on prevention, early detection and treatment of dental diseases, and keep current on the latest advances in dentistry for children.

Pleasant visits to the dental office promote a trust and confidence within your child that will last a lifetime.  Our goal is to help all children feel good about visiting the dentist and to teach them how to care for their teeth.  Our special office designs and our communication style reinforce our main concern - your child's dental health and the development of a lifetime of healthy dental habits.
