Your health. Your confidence. Your teeth.
At Gilbert Family Dentistry, we take all of the above seriously because we know that they are closely connected. Well-maintained teeth that regularly receive attention from a dentist make an active contribution to your overall health. And who doesn't feel more confident when they know that their smile appears bright and strong?
As important as your teeth are, we understand that you have a busy life and need your dentist to be as efficient as possible while serving you.
We believe that a dentist should provide more than clean, healthy teeth; they should also answer questions and address concerns in a friendly, gentle manner. With modern training and techniques, a visit to the dentist can be a pleasant, relaxing experience. Whether you need a simple cleaning, or a more complex procedure, we hope you will let us help to enrich your health and your confidence by caring for your teeth!
First Visits for ChildrenYour child's first dental visit will consist of a thorough review of your child's dental and health information and a comprehensive dental examination along with a discussion on proper diet, nutrition and good oral hygiene habits.
Depending on the age and needs of your child, we will complete a professional dental cleaning, conduct re-mineralization therapy, and take any necessary x-rays. Dr. Daniel Gilbert will take time to discuss any concerns you may have, and prepare you for what you can expect during your child's oral development. If decay is found, the information collected will allow Dr. Daniel Gilbert to prepare a treatment plan and recommend the best options for your child's dental care.
Please help us make the first visit enjoyable and positive! We encourage parents and caregivers to use positive stories about visiting the dentist.
Try to avoid using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear. Words like "needle", "shot", "drill", or "hurt" may cause preventable anxiety and make the first dental visit more difficult for your child. At Gilbert Family Dentistry, we will work with you to make your child's first dental visit an adventure that sets a positive foundation for the rest of their life.
We encourage you to stay with your child during the initial examination, and during future visits you can let your child join us on their own, depending on age and comfort.
