A lifetime of smiles starts with a good foundation
Give your kids a great start building good oral hygiene habits and monitor their progress as they grow into their beautiful smiles. We understand how challenging and rewarding family care can be and kids need extra special consideration. Having a healthy smile is such an important part of childhood, let’s get them started on the right path with guidance that’s personalized for their needs.
Getting ready for your first appointment
Feel free to talk to your child about the upcoming trip to the dentist. The main purpose of your child’s first visit is to relax, have some fun, and start building a positive relationship with the dentist. Sometimes, not knowing what to expect can make people feel a little nervous. Here’s what your child can expect during their first appointment:
Talk and Listen
We will talk to you and your child, explain what we’re going to do and why and familiarize your child with some of the tools we use. We speak in kid-friendly language and explain any lingo so they can feel as comfortable and assured as possible. See! We’re not so scary after all.
We will gently examine your child’s gums, tongue, teeth and overall health. Our exam will uncover any areas of concern or tricky spots that may need some extra attention at home. We will provide you with personalized guidance and make a note to pay special attention to those spots during the next appointment.
We might ask your child to show us how they brush their teeth and then give them gentle instructions on how to improve brushing their teeth at home. We would love to answer any questions you or your child have about dental health.

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.
Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.
Frequently Asked Questions
Don't just rely on our word, read about the meaningful ways we've enhanced the smiles of so many directly from our patients!
Most businesses will attempt to "WOW" you on your initial visit- which I expect. With this office; it happened on the second, third, and fourth visits (also with phone conversations in between) and cemented my love and trust for this team of professional caregivers! Dr. Bowdle and Dr. Wolkow's professionalism did not disappoint. They never rush my appointments, express concern and genuine care, and are phenomenal communicators!
Their staff have done a great job with me. They are very interested in the best interest of each patient. They do a fine job with dental implants as well, and I would highly recommend them to anyone!
I can't say enough great things about Dr. Wolkow and his staff. I am a new patient and was nervous since it had been way too long since I had been to a dentist. Yet, the entire staff was beyond nice and explained every single thing they were looking for or checking on with great consideration. They did a very thorough exam to check for various things. In both of my visits I was seated within 5 minutes after arriving, which has never happened anywhere else! Stellar hospitality! If you are looking for a new dentist, look no further!
