First Visit

Welcome to Laxer, Long & Savage. We're looking forward to getting to know you.

What to Expect

When you arrive for your first visit, we'll ask you to fill out any necessary medical and insurance forms so that we can begin your treatment. Once those are completed, we'll introduce you to our pediatric dental team. Don't worry if your child is apprehensive or resistant. Our knowledgeable, experienced staffers have seen it all, and are skilled in helping to ease any fears. With their gentle encouragement, your child will soon feel confident and at home in our offices.

To help us determine your child's current dental health, digital radiographs may be taken before the exam begins. If no immediate treatment is needed, we will clean your child's teeth and apply a professional fluoride solution. The doctor will then complete the examination.

We welcome parents of very young children to remain with their child throughout the visit. Parents of older children will be invited to join their child for a consultation after the screening is finished.

At that time, we'll discuss any existing dental problems, along with proposed treatment options, and answer any questions you may have. We will also discuss proper dental hygiene to ensure that your child is building the habits that will help create healthy teeth and gums.

That's all there is to it.

At this point, your child has successfully navigated his first visit and is on the way to long-term dental health. It's all smiles from here.
