Centennial Children's Dental Center is dedicated to providing the highest quality dental care, by treating children with compassion and respect. Our mission is to establish and maintain the highest standards of care to all our patients: infants, children, adolescents and those with special needs. As a staff, we continually strive to meet and exceed the needs of all our patients, as well as their parents. Our goal at CCDC is to make dentistry an enjoyable and comfortable experience while providing the most specialized and comprehensive care to all our patients.
Each time that a reserved appointment is made with our office, our talented doctor and staff have dedicated that time solely to the scheduled patient. If your child arrives late or fails to show up for this reserved time, it affects many people, including other patients in need. We urge that you help us provide all of our patients with the highest level of care possible by keeping your reserved appointment times.
If you are absolutely unable to keep a reserved time for your child, we kindly request a 24-hour notice to change the appointment. Otherwise a $50 charge will apply.
Our office reserves the right to ask for a deposit prior to scheduling patients with a history of chronically missed appointments.
We understand your time is valuable. In order for us to stay punctual and see all of our patients at their reserved appointment time, we may be unable to see patients who arrive later than 10 minutes for their scheduled appointments.
All children should arrive for their dental appointments with their parent or legal guardian, who should remain in our office for the duration of the child’s appointment. If this is not possible, the adult accompanying your child should have written permission from you to make treatment decisions for your child. This person will also be responsible for payment of all charges pertaining to the appointment.
Please keep our office updated with any changes to your family’s pertinent information, including all daytime phone numbers, mailing addresses and insurance coverage information.
We always encourage parents to accompany their child to the treatment room for his/her appointment, and to “come back” during cleanings and operative appointments, however, some parents feel that their child may do better without them in the room. If you choose to be in the clinical area we suggest the following guidelines to ensure a positive outcome:
These are very important ways that you can actively help your child have a successful dental visit. We are confident that all will go well and hope these guidelines will help prepare you with confidence for the upcoming appointment.
Even though we have one location in Centennial, we get great clients from the surrounding areas: Centennial Pediatric Dentistry (our office location), Aurora Pediatric Dentistry, Highlands Ranch Pediatric Dentistry, Littleton Pediatric Dentistry, and Parker Pediatric Dentistry.
We invite you to join us in creating the best possible dental experience for your child. Over the years we have learned that language is a very important tool in creating a positive approach to dentistry. To reduce the possibility of anxiety and fear, we use the positive terminology listed below when talking to children. Please feel free to use this child-friendly language when talking with your child about dentistry.
|Child Friendly Terminology||Replaces|
|Count your teeth||Examination|
|Tickle your teeth||Tooth cleaning|
|Sugar bug||Decay, cavity|
|Sleepy juice||Needle or shot|
|Clean a tooth||Drill on tooth|
|Wiggle a tooth out||Pull or yank a tooth|
Our goal is to create a happy experience for your child. We appreciate your cooperation in developing a fun and positive attitude toward oral healthcare that will last a lifetime!
