How can I prepare for my appointment?
+

How can I prepare my child for their visit to the dentist?
+
Begin talking to children about their appointment as soon as you can. The earlier you can talk to them about their visit, the more comfortable they’ll feel.

Here are some ideas for helping them prepare for their visit:

Many children love to play dentist, and this is a great time to introduce a “practice visit” to them. Go through the steps of having them sit in the chair, lean back, open their mouth and hold it open, and practice sitting still for the dentist. Tell them what’s happening at each step, and what they might see, feel, and hear.

If your child is scared or uncomfortable, be sure to comfort them by reassuring them that you’ll be there with them during their appointment. You can also bring a comforting item from home, like a toy, stuffed animal, blanket, or something special to the child.

Your local library, YouTube, and other websites also have educational resources like books and videos on visiting the dentist and are great tools for helping prepare children for their appointment.

Lastly, you can be a great role model for them by demonstrating good eating and oral health habits. Parents can even take their children to their own dentist appointments and show them what happens. Remember, your own attitude and fears of the dentist can have a great influence on your children, so be aware that everything you do—from talking about the dentist to taking care of your own teeth—will be absorbed by your child.
What can my child expect during their first visit to Manzana Dentistry?
+
During your visits to Manzana Dental, you can expect to receive quality, convenient, and stress-free oral healthcare. Our family-friendly office will help your child feel comfortable before their appointment.

Before we perform an exam or a procedure, the dentist will show you and tell you what they’re going to do. If your child is feeling nervous about seeing the dentist, we can help you to calm them. We may also be using a local anesthesia to prevent any tooth or gum pain.

When the exam is over, we will tell you about the work that was done and give you any necessary after-care instructions, prescriptions, medications, and answer any of your questions.
How much does it cost to get my child's teeth cleaned? What about adults?
+
Your out-of-pocket cost will depend on what your insurance plan covers. Many plans cover the entire cost of a routine cleaning and exam. Other insurance plans may require a co-pay for cleanings, exams, and x-rays. If you’d like to find out what your cost will be, please give us a call and we’ll help you find out.
Are parents allowed to attend the appointment with their children?
+
Yes, parents are welcome to attend their child’s visit. For some children, having a parent or guardian with them will help them feel more comfortable at their appointment. Sometimes, having a parent or guardian present can be distracting to children. Our dentist can help you figure out what will work best for you and your child.
