The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children have their first dental visit once the first tooth appears, and no later than the child’s first birthday.
When you come for your child’s first visit, please arrive fifteen (15) minutes beforehand. This allows for parking, to complete any additional paperwork, present your insurance card, and see your child on time. A parent or legal guardian (with official documentation) must be present during the initial examination and/or restorative appointment. Make sure to provide us with complete information regarding your child’s health history so that we may better serve your child’s needs.
To schedule your child’s first appointment, please give us a call at 360-573-3176 or schedule online. We look forward to seeing you and your child.

If you arrive ten (10) or more minutes late for your child’s appointment, you may be asked to reschedule for the next available time and it will be counted as a broken appointment. This policy will be strictly enforced.
When making an appointment over the phone, please keep your schedule information in a place where you will be easily reminded. When making an in-office appointment, we will provide an appointment card. Our front desk does call to confirm an appointment at least one (1) day ahead.
Due to the high demands for general anesthesia treatment, we will try to confirm these types of appointments two (2) daysahead of time. If we are unable to confirm an anesthesia appointment by 12:00pm the day before the appointment day, we reserve the right to allocate the slot to another patient.
We understand that unforeseeable events including emergency may arise. If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please inform our office at least 24 hours ahead of time. This will enable other patients with urgent dental care requests to fill in the spot.
For any appointment cancelled without 24 hours’ advance notice or missed appointments (“No Shows”), shall count as a “broken appointment”. For any broken appointment, we reserve the right to perform the following:
** For appointments that were confirmed, but broken without notice to our office, we reserve the right to dismiss. **
We accept most insurances.
For all other information regarding your child’s visit to our office, including regarding insurance, please give us a call at 360-573-3176. We will be more than happy to answer your questions.
Your convenience is important to us. We understand that you may wish to view and have forms ready prior to your first or next visit. We recommend that you print these forms and fill them prior to your arrival.
Please be aware that separate forms are required for each child.
