First Visit

We are known in the community for being the most comprehensive and skilled Pediatric Dental practice in the area. We provide exceptional and specialized care by customizing treatment based on the patient's age, behavior, and previous dental experience.

While using the latest technology available in the dental field, we consistently provide high quality dentistry in a warm and compassionate environment.

In each child’s best interest, we are an educational resource providing information on preventive and restorative care to ensure the trust and confidence of our patients and parents.

Children’s Dental Care of Garland, as well as the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recommends that parents begin pediatric dental care for their child by their first birthday. As a parent, you have a very important role in making your child’s first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive. For this reason we recommend that parents accompany their child throughout their first dental appointment. Our mission is to provide excellent care in a warm, compassionate environment while encouraging a healthy smile for a healthy child. It is very important for parents to refrain from using terms around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as “needles”, “shots” or “drills”.

Children with Special Needs

Dr. Smart and her team have been extensively trained to provide the best care possible to our special needs patients. We understand the unique challenges that patients with significant medical, physical, or mental disabilities often encounter—that is why an integral part of our education is concerned with the medical and dental health of the special patient.

We strive to make each and every visit to our office a fun one!

For your convenience prior to visiting our office, we have provided a printable copy of the New Patient Health History Form located below. Please complete the information and bring it with you on your first child’s first visit to our office. If you are an existing patient and need to update your health history, we have provided the Health History Update form as well.
