New Patient InformationFor Garland Residents
Welcome to Shiny Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, where young patients of all ages are put on the path to a healthy and beautiful smile for a lifetime to come. If you’re thinking about bringing your child to see us for the first time, then you’ll find answers to many of your most basic questions in the information below. If you have any others, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We look forward to meeting you and can’t wait to welcome your little one to our patient family!
Your First Visit
What happens during your child’s first visit will largely depend on their age and particular needs. For a child’s very first appointment, we’ll slowly introduce them to the practice and maybe perform a brief exam while they sit in your lap. For toddlers and above, their appointments will more closely resemble your own, including an exam, X-rays, and a cleaning. If your child has a particular issue that needs to be addressed, we’ll start on that right away and offer you a selection of treatment options.
Our number one goal is to help both your child and you feel comfortable starting at your very first visit, so if you ever have any questions, be sure to ask them! Also, if your child has mental or physical special needs, please call ahead so we can prepare the office for them and make any special accommodations that will help everyone feel more at ease.

It can be tough keeping an eye on your child while filling out numerous patient forms, so now you have the option to download them and complete them before you’re sitting in our office!
