First Pediatric Dental Visit
Dr. Brummer and his team are dedicated to great dental experiences.
We, along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recommend you bring your child in by his or her first birthday.
During your first visit, you will be introduced to our Pediatric Dental Team, given an office tour and discuss your child’s unique smile and ways to keep it beautiful for years to come.
Depending on the age of your child, he or she will either be given a knee-to-knee examination (where your baby’s head will rest on our doctor’s knee while their body is on your lap) or a regular exam in the doctor’s chair.
We request that you complete our First Visit Forms prior to arriving for your appointment. This helps our office keep your and everyone else’s scheduled visit on time.
Your initial exam will last approximately 30 minutes. Oral hygiene instructions will also be given with suggestions to help your child care for his or her own teeth. In most cases, we will also clean their teeth on this visit, and provide an evaluation that will outline any existing dental problems and proposed treatment.
Please print and fill out our New Patient Forms.
Bring them with you at first appointment. Thank You.
What is a Pediatric Dentist?
Pediatric Dentists, like Dr. Brummer, are specialists dedicated to the oral health of children and the monitoring of their facial growth and development. Our office is designed for treating children from infancy through adolescence, as well as the medically and the physically compromised.
Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?
A pediatric patient not only has a different dentition
than adults but he/she may have specific dental and behavioral needs that are unique to a child. These
needs may include orthodontics, dental sealants, fluoride applications or home treatments, or just simply education in oral hygiene. In addition to treating existing dental problems, our office focuses on prevention through patient and parent education. We like to feel that you and your child do not come to our office to have their “cavities fixed” but rather to prevent them. Our office provides all of the educational tools necessary for our patients to enjoy a cavity-free future.
Establishing Your Child’s
What is a Board Certified
When a Pediatric Dentist is Board Certified it means that the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry or ABPD certifies that the dental care being provided is based on standards of excellence that lead to high quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents and patients with special health care needs. Certification by the ABPD provides assurance to the public that Pediatric Dentists, like Dr. Brummer, have successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to the delivery of quality patient care.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry encourages parents and other care providers to help every child establish a dental home by 12 months of age. Establishing a dental home provides some key components to dental care for your child including...
• Comprehensive oral health care including acute care and preventive services.
• Individualized preventive dental health program based upon a caries-risk assessment.
• Anticipatory guidance regarding growth and development.
• Plan for acute dental trauma (emergencies).
• Dietary counseling.
• Referrals to dental specialists when care cannot directly be provided within the dental home.
• Referral at an age determined by patient, parent, and pediatric dentist.

Love this place! Always so nice, quickly get my 3 kids in and out- not much waiting around at all, and I love how they talk to my kids and do a great job of explaining what they are doing, how to appropriately brush, etc.
My son and I had an amazing experience today at his appointment.
Thank you for being so wonderful!!

My daughter had to go to get a cavity taken care of. She was incredibly nervous and I was too. But from the moment we walked in those doors, each person she came in contact with calmed her down. Everybody was so kind and patient with her. I was very impressed at how fast and easy they made the little procedure. My daughter did not feel any pain at all.
