Click on a question!

  • What should I bring to my first visit?

    Dr. Sherman and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a child’s first visit be completed by their first birthday.

     

    On your first visit to our office, please bring your insurance card and our First Visit Packet already completed.  If you do not bring it with you, please come 15 minutes early so that we can see your child on time.

     

    Your insurance determines your coverage.  Any amount not covered by your insurance will be due that day.

     

  • Do you accept insurance?

    We accept many insurance plans and as a courtesy, we will submit your insurance claim for you.  The portion that is not covered by the insurance company is your responsibility and due at the time of service. If payment is not met in full at time of services, then a statement will be sent to you and will reflect a service fee.

     

    It is a benefit to you to know and understand what your insurance benefits are, including deductibles and co-pays. Regrettably, we do not dictate insurance policies and can only work with them. We will make every effort to help you understand what your coverages are.

  • What can I expect to pay for my child’s visit?

    We would be happy to discuss fees and insurance with parents prior to the first visit in our office.

     

    Our receptionists will discuss this with you, and answer any questions you may have prior to making your first appointment.

  • My child may be nervous. How can you help?

    It is quite normal for children to be anxious about their first visit to the dentist.  Pediatric dentists have special training in helping anxious children feel secure during treatment. Also, pediatric dental offices are designed to make children feel comfortable. Dr. Sherman and her staff will do their best to make your child comfortable.  Feel free to let your child bring their favorite comfort toy or blanket. Staff members choose to work in our pediatric dental practice because they enjoy working with children.

  • We have several children and scheduling is important to us. Do you run on time, and will you see all my children at once?

    Seeing several children in one family at the same time is never a problem for our staff.  We know that our parents have busy schedules, and we do our best to stay on  schedule at all times.

Pediatric Dentistry

Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric Dentistry is the dental specialty recognized by the American Dental Association which encompasses comprehensive dental care for all children, from infancy through adolescence.

 

A children’s dental specialist is a practitioner who, after becoming a general dentist (often called a family dentist), has completed an additional two years of post-doctoral training in the recognition and treatment of children’s dental and orthodontic problems. Specialty education includes child psychology, behavior guidance, preventive techniques, restorative dentistry, interceptive and comprehensive orthodontic care (braces), and the treatment of children with special needs.

 

A thorough exam will be done to evaluate the health of your child's teeth, gums and mouth.

We will evaluate your child's growth and development and check to make sure your child's oral development is on track.  Our office will make child specific recommendations for the need of sealants, fluoride and other services based on your child's individual needs and habits.

 

Our doctors are trained to evaluate proper positioning of teeth and jaw structures, checking for the influence of any habits your child may have.

 

We strive to make each visit fun, educational and memorable.

Special Healthcare Needs

If your child has special healthcare needs, feel great knowing his/her dental needs are not necessarily any different than those of any other child. The difference is how your child’s dental care is delivered based upon their specific needs.

 

A child with special needs is defined as having a development or acquired physical, mental, development, sensory, behavioral, cognitive, and/or emotional impairment that necessitates medical management, some kind of health care intervention, and/or use of specialized services or programs. This could include asthma, autism spectrum disorders, Down syndrome, and many others.  If your child has special health care needs, trust that Dr. Sherman will review your child’s condition and custom tailor the delivery of care to fit your child’s specific needs. Before your appointment, kindly call us to provide us with specific details of your child’s condition (whatever information you can provide would be helpful).

Dr. Sherman will work closely with your child’s medical doctor to ensure their dental health plan is part of their overall health plan. Rest easy knowing our team is well prepared for your child’s visit.
