TIPS FOR MAKING A DENTAL APPOINTMENT…..
 
blush  Explain that your child has been referred to see a dentist from your pediatrician, family doctor, or through a CHDP exam

smiley If your child has a toothache or is in pain be sure to tell the dental office.
 
smiley If the dental office isn’t making appointments for new patients and you have transportation and can make a “last minute” appointment, ask if you may have your child placed on a cancelation list to see the dentist in the event of a cancelation.

smiley If you make an appointment, be sure to go to the dentist at that time.  If it is necessary to cancel your appointment please call as early as possible, so that your appointment can be filled by someone else.  Your “no show” wastes the dentist’s time and may prevent you or a family member from getting service in the future.
