Is it time to find a pediatric dental home? You’ll want to look for a practice that will focus on your child’s needs and give him a headstart in the race against childhood tooth decay. How should you begin the search? A personal endorsement from another parent or the recommendation from your pediatrician would be your best source of referral but short of that, you can search the internet to get information about the various pediatric dental facilities in your area. Most well-established practices will have a website in place, pay close attention to the parent review page.

When you have narrowed down your search the next step is to do some personal reconnaissance, pay a visit to the office. Look at the amenities it has to offer, your child is going to be spending a lot of time there and you want it to be a place where he will be comfortable and welcomed. The staff should be friendly and you should be able to sense that they have a genuine interest in the care and comfort of the patients who visit.

Ask questions. Does the practice set aside time for unexpected emergencies, is there a number to call after regular business hours? Is there an emphasis on preventive care? Does the dentist place importance on education? Dr. Kaelin is happy to answer your questions and discuss your concerns, call Kaelin Pediatric Dentistry today @ 303-732-6891 in Parker, CO.
