We are so happy that you have put your trust in Dr. Sophie and staff at Pima Pediatric Dentistry for your children’s dental care.
Each child is an individual, with his or her own fears. We explain our procedures to your child in a friendly, non-threatening way. We strive to answer all of your questions completely and to your satisfaction. Working together, we believe we can provide a positive experience for your child so that they do not fear going to the dentist.
You can relax knowing that Dr. Sophie is specialty trained pediatric dentist who will always provide the individualized advanced dental care your child deserves.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and Dr. Sophie recommend that your child’s first visit to the dentist be within 6 months of the eruption of the first primary (baby) tooth or by one year of age, whichever comes first.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (the group pediatricians belong to) recommends that a qualified oral health care provider evaluate a child by 6 months of age. Early evaluation and education may prevent many dental problems from developing. This initial appointment is designed to be an educational process for us and for you. We can learn about you and your child and you can be taught proper oral hygiene for your child, use of the bottle and/or pacifier, and teething issues.
For your convenience we have placed our office forms on line for your review and to download if you choose. You may choose to open these forms using Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat. For the first visit, please complete our Registration Form and either bring it with you to the first appointment or e-mail it to us.
We have also placed pre and post operative/treatment forms on the website so they are available to you 24 hours a day.
