First Visit

parker-castle-rock-pediatric-dentistry-kids-having-funWelcome to Canyon Ridge Pediatric Dentistry. Our goal is to help children feel comfortable and happy at the dental office.

Our waiting room includes amenities such as video games, a 100 gallon fish tank and a play area for the kids. We have also recently added animal photography to our waiting area and operatories. After filling out some paperwork the children go back to the dental rooms.

Parents are always invited and encouraged to accompany their children during their visit. Each dental chair features a television so that children can watch a movie while having their teeth cleaned. After the cleaning we may take x-rays with the permission of the parent. Dr. Thomas will then perform a dental exam and discuss any dental concerns with the children and parents.

Afterwards, with permission of the parent we will apply fluoride to the teeth to reduce the risk of cavities. Finally each patient is invited to pick a prize as well as a sugar free lollipop. It is very common when the appointment is over for kids to want to stay longer!
