What is Our Kids’ Club?
The Farrow and Dewbre Kids’ Club is designed for our young patients that do not require immediate treatment. Through regular Growth and Guidance appointments, we will continue to monitor your child to determine if and when treatment is necessary. The Kids' Club assists these patients in becoming more comfortable with our office and more knowledgeable about orthodontic treatment. We want all our patients to feel like they are a part of our office, even if they are not yet receiving orthodontic treatment.
Here’s how it works
Our doctors and the AAO recommend that all children be seen by an orthodontist by the age of seven. At these routine appointments, your child’s growth and development will be monitored until the optimal time in the growth period has been reached for starting any necessary orthodontic treatment. Digital radiographs and diagnostic records (if recommended) are included in your complimentary appointments.
It’s so easy! If immediate treatment is not determined to be needed during your child’s initial examination, your son or daughter will automatically become part of our Kids’ Club. A follow-up visit will be scheduled and your child will receive a Kids' Club lanyard and stamp card. We have several different ways for your child to earn stamps and complete their card for a special prize!
How does my child join?
Bring your child in for the first new patient exam at your convenience. The initial appointment takes between 45 and 60 minutes. The length of the exam depends on how much time is needed to take X-rays, discuss potential concerns the doctor may have, and address any of your questions. We look forward to having your child be a part of our Kids’ club and to giving him or her a beautiful and healthy smile.
How much does it cost?
There is NO FEE associated with the Kids’ Club program! All Growth and Guidance appointments and any X-Rays that are taken during this time are complimentary.
