Your Child’s First Visit
YOUR FIRST VISIT
Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, and high-quality dental care. We understand that your child may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to children’s needs and it is our goal to make your son or daughter feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best possible care.
Your first visit is all about your child’s comfort, happiness, and health.
During your little one’s first visit, we will review the dental and medical history forms, and take X-rays of your boy or girl’s teeth and mouth. Then Dr. Cregger and Associates will meet with you and your child to discuss the X-rays, help create an individual treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have.
At your next visit, one of our staff will clean and polish your son or daughter’s teeth, and inspect for cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis.

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends that children visit the dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep their teeth and gums healthy.
We understand your family has a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing for a dental visit, please remember an appointment can last between 30 and 50 minutes.
The cost of treatment may vary, depending on your child’s individual needs and treatment plan. We will discuss the cost of treatment and each of your available payment plan options with you before your little one begins treatment, so you can make the best choice for your child and your family.
Affordable Payment Plans
Your son or daughter’s smile can last forever, and we want to make it as easy as possible to receive the best dental care whenever needed.
Our practice accepts most major credit cards and insurance plans.
Our office staff is always available to help you with insurance claims and paperwork. We’ll work with your insurance provider to make sure your coverage meets your family’s needs and budget.
Please let us know if you have any questions about insurance coverage, and let us know how we can help to make your entire dental experience a pleasant one.
