Are parents allowed back with their child?

Sure! We not only allow parents back for exams, we encourage parents to be a part of their child’s dental experience. While parents have the option of staying in the waiting room, we would like parents to be present so they may observe and learn firsthand of any dental or behavioral concerns we may have. We also allow parents back for most treatment as well.
