Hi, I’m Dr. Scott Furrow, a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist, and I would like to welcome you to Leander Pediatric Dentistry. Children bring with them energy and excitement and are full of life and surprises. I know that how I treat each child will have a major influence on their perception of dentistry and I know that I can make it a positive memory. My team is dedicated to helping provide children with the necessary building blocks for creating a positive dental attitude. Below is information that you may find helpful in preparing for the first visit to our office.
PRIOR TO YOUR CHILD’S FIRST VISIT – We will contact you with instructions for completing paperwork necessary for treatment of your child. By completing most paperwork in advance, it allows both our patients and their parents to experience what it is that sets our office apart.
THE FIRST VISIT AND OUR POLICY – Before the age of 3 years, we ask that parents accompany their entire dental visit. Our dental experience has show that after this age, most patients excel by visiting the clinical area with their new found friends… patients and staff, with the parents in the reception area. By looking to us for interaction rather than their parents, this opportunity builds their self-esteem and confidence since they become proud of their independence. In addition to developing a relationship with myself and my team, the patients quickly realize that Leander Pediatric Dentistry is one rule of thumb, parents are allowed in the clinic and I enjoy visiting with parents as well. We know that your child’s first visit to the dentist is a very important milestone and we are confident that choosing Leander Pediatric Dentistry is a great decision!
