Before you come in for your first visit, save time by printing our patient forms in the (Our/Practice/Online Patient Registration tab) of our web page, complete and bring with you to your first appointment.
Upon arrival for your first visit to Dr. Haskins' office, you will be greeted with a smile and a warm welcome. If you have any questions or concerns about your appointment, feel free to ask one of our team members and they will happily assist you.
You will then be taken by one of our team members to a relaxing exam room where we will spend some time getting to know you and your concerns. A determination will be made of any necessary x-rays and then they will be taken. An exam will then be given by Dr. Haskins to assess if there is treatment necessary. If so, Dr. Haskins will discuss the appropriate treatment and your treatment options with you. If treatment is necessary, our treatment/financial coordinator will meet with you to discuss the treatment time-frame, treatment options, insurance benefits and any financial obligations that you would incur.
Our commitment is to provide you with the knowledge that is necessary for YOU to decide the course of treatment that best fits your needs and expectations.
Children's First Visit
We know that a child's first visit to the dentist can be an anxious event and we will do everything we can to make your child as comfortable with this new experience as possible. We have a great staff that is wonderful with children and we are committed to making them leave here asking when they will get to come back.
We take time to get them acquainted with all the new equipment and unfamiliar surroundings. They will get to take a ride in the "fun chair", show them our "tooth flashlight", "tooth counter" and our tooth picture taker. At the end of the appointment, they will get a goodie bag to take home with some toys and stickers to show how good they were.
We try to make this a very relaxing and non-threatening experience for your child. A child's first dental experience can set the tone for their attitude about future dental visits. Be sure to talk to your child ahead of time and emphasize that going to the dentist can be fun, and let us know of any special needs or concerns you or your child have before your first visit.
We have found that except for very young children, your child will usually have a better experience if mom or dad lets the child be a "big boy or girl" and go to the exam room without them. The doctor will then have you come to the consultation room at the end of the visit and discuss the visit with you.
