What to Expect on Your First Visit
Has Your Child Never Been to a Dentist?
Here is what to expect if your child has never visited our dentistry; they may have a few questions before they come to see us. Our goal is always to make children as comfortable as possible and to make their visit to the dentist fun and relaxing. Let’s take a look at what a typical visit to Junior Smiles Children’s Dentistry® looks like for your child.
What to Expect During Your First Visit to Jr. Smiles®
When kids visit our practice in Thornton, they will be greeted with a relaxing and open environment that looks nothing like the dentist offices of old.
Colorful chairs in the waiting room and a play area greet your child when they walk in. The goal is to make their visit to the dentist fun and enjoyable.
Once their appointment starts, you will notice that our practice has an open concept examination area so that kids never feel closed in. We provide a clean and relaxed atmosphere where parents can always be right beside their child during each stage of the visit.
It is worth explaining to your child that they will never be alone during their appointment at Jr. Smiles®. Parents always sit with their kids during the examination and are there by their side to ask any questions and to talk to the child while the dentist does their work.
Our examination area and cleaning area also feature screens above every chair that play licensed movies that your child can watch during their examination should they choose to. Our pediatric dentists will also explain to your child what they are doing at each step of the appointment so that they can follow along and learn as well.
Sending Kids Home Happy
Developing a familiarity and positive connection between your child and the dentist is a great way to make dental appointments enjoyable as your child grows.
This is why Jr. Smiles® never sends kids home empty handed. Each appointment always ends with a visit to our toy wall, where your child can pick out a free toy to bring home with them.
¡Se Habla Español!
Our dentistry also welcomes kids in both English and Spanish.
Whether your child is excited about the Tooth Fairy or El Ratoncito Pérez, we can accommodate families in both languages.
