At Trotter and Patel Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, we recognize that every child is unique and we strive to make each child’s appointment special. We understand that you or your child may feel nervous about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs and want to offer the best care possible. It is our goal to make each and every visit fun, educational and above all a positive experience. We invite you to stay with your child during the first visit and routine recall appointments. For future visits, if restorative treatment is needed, we suggest you allow our staff to accompany your child during the appointment and gain your child’s confidence. However, if you prefer to accompany your child, you certainly may do so.
Upon your arrival, please notify our receptionist. You will be greeted by our treatment coordinator, who will begin acquainting you with our office. After the treatment coordinator has acquainted you with our office, an assistant will work with Dr. Patel to take digital images, if needed, for Dr. Patel to use during a thorough clinical orthodontic examination. The purpose of the initial examination is to answer: • What sort of problem is present, if any? • When is the proper time to begin treatment? • What type of treatment is indicated? • How long will treatment take? • How much will the treatment cost? Our friendly staff can explain all of our financing options during your initial complimentary consultation. Our treatment coordinators will work with you to design a plan that best meets the needs of your family!
