Group Scheduling for your Family
When you have plenty of loved ones to worry about, the constant trek to different dental offices can be a drain on your time, your budget, and your patience. Here in Newtown, our staff is happy to offer families a safe haven of dedicated professionals and comprehensive care. We can treat the needs of young children, adults, and grandparents alike here, and even better, we can schedule appointments for everyone as a group for more convenience and comfort.
The dental care that patients receive at a young age can shape their attitude towards oral health for many years to come. That’s why we always provide a gentle, quality approach that fits their unique personality and emotional maturity as closely as possible. Our doctors will keep a close eye out for any possible developmental concerns that can be treated early on, and children’s services like dental sealants and fluoride treatment can provide their growing smiles with valuable protection. Once your son or daughter is old enough, we’ll also be happy to teach them the right ways to brush and floss!
Your First Appointment
Our Newtown team does everything we can to make you and your family’s experiences with us as smooth and enjoyable as possible, starting at your very first visit. When you step through the front door, you’ll be greeted by our treatment coordinator at the front desk who are ready to help you. After filling out the necessary paperwork, one of our Dental Assistants will escort you to the treatment room where you will meet your Dentist to discuss your dental concerns. Once he or she has handled your dental questions and established a course of treatment, the doctor will walk you back to the front desk and provide you with any additional instructions and recommendations. Finally, our friendly staff will help you complete your payment and the scheduling of your next appointment. Our team will also ask you to fill out a survey about your experience – these help us assure we are providing you with the very best patient experience, which is critically important to us!
Dental sealants are often a great preventive service for children who are still learning to care for their teeth, as well as older patients who struggle with enamel that’s overly sensitive to decay. These sealants are designed to cover the deep chewing grooves of certain teeth where food particles and bacteria have a tendency to accumulate. By covering these areas, our team can better minimize the risk of cavities. The application process is quick and painless, and with proper maintenance, sealants can last for 10 years or more.
You always make sure to wear a helmet or kneepads when playing your favorite sport – but what about something to protect your smile? Instead of relying on one-size-fits-all mouthguards that can be found at most athletics stores, we strongly recommend a customized appliance from our Newtown practice for much more comfort and ease of use. Your mouthguard will protect your teeth, your soft tissue, and your lips from the impacts that can occur with hard surfaces, projectiles, or other players. In fact, studies suggest that concussions may be less severe if the patient is wearing a mouthguard.
