New Pediatric Dental Patients

We Welcome New Pediatric Dental Patients!

dr_john_Christensen_DDSWelcome to Durham Pediatric and Orthodontics! We’re honored you are entrusting us with your child’s dental care and look forward to being part of your “health” family for many years.  Our office staff will work with you to find convenient appointment times and we will do our best to minimize appointments that interrupt the school or work day.


Before Your First Visit: 

We look forward to meeting you and your child at your first appointment. Please visit our Patient Forms page and print out a copy of our Pediatric Health History Form. Please complete this form and bring it with you to your first appointment. A copy of our Privacy Policy is also available for you to review (HIPAA).

If your child has been seen by another dentist, please contact that office at least two weeks in advance and request that your child’s x-rays and dental history be sent to us. This will provide us with important dental information and also avoid unnecessary duplication of x-rays for your child.

If you have dental insurance, please provide that information when you are scheduling your appointment. Always bring your current insurance card with you to each appointment. Please refer to our Insurance page if you have additional insurance questions.

For more information on what to expect at your child’s appointment, please visit our Pediatric Dentistry page.
