Let's work together to find an appointment that truly fits your schedule.
PEDIATRIC Appointment Notes
Restorative Procedure Appointments
All pediatric restorative procedures, such as fillings, and with or without the use of Nitrous Oxide, are scheduled for morning appointments before 1:00 p.m.
Preventative Procedure Appointments
We recommend scheduling young patients for preventative procedures, such as cleanings, during morning hours. We find younger children have a better overall experience at this time of day.
We’ve proudly invested in a user-friendly appointment scheduling application designed to make simple, fast, and secure appointments.

Questions ABOUT SchedulinG
How often should I book appointments?
It's recommended that patients come in every 6 months for a cleaning. However, patients that are at higher risk for disease/decay may benefit from 3-4 cleanings per year.
How far in advance should I book?
Once your cleaning is complete, we recommend scheduling your next 6-month cleaning before you leave. If fillings or other work is needed, it is highly recommended that it be scheduled for as soon as possible, unless told otherwise.
How long do appointments take?
Typical pediatric cleanings are 30 minutes, unless we plan on doing a full mouth x-ray, in which case we'll need 1 hour.
Ortho appointments are 30 minutes, unless told otherwise.
If a pediatric appointment involes using nitrous oxide, you can expect your appointment to be at least 45 minutes long.
