Appointments

We strive to see all of our patients promptly and trust that you will make every effort to be on time for your appointments. If for any reason you do arrive later than appointed, we will try to accommodate you, but please realize it may be necessary to reschedule. If your child cannot make his/her appointment, please notify us as soon as possible so that we may offer the time to another child. We understand that circumstances might arise which would require you to reschedule an appointment on short notice, however, failure to give 48 hours notice on business days may result in a broken appointment fee.

 

Please realize that children may have to miss some school in order to make their appointments. Children under the age of seven, and some children with special needs, deal much better with the dental visit if they are seen earlier in the day rather than in the afternoon. Therefore, we schedule these children before 1:00 p.m. We understand that preschool/school is important for this age group, but in the grand scheme of things it is far more important that afternoon appointments be reserved for older children, where missing school is of more consequence.

 

Emergencies

Occasionally, we have to treat emergencies which may delay our seeing regularly scheduled patients. While we regret any inconvenience this may cause you, we are committed to giving emergencies priority treatment. If your child should have a dental emergency, call us as soon as possible. If immediate attention is required, we will make time available to see your child that day. In the event that we are not in the office, and you are a patient of record, our voice mail will instruct you on how to contact the on-call doctor.

 

Payment

Payment is due at the time of service.  We accept cash, checks, Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. While we do not file insurance for you, we will provide you with an insurance statement which you can attach to a claim form for insurance reimbursement.  We do not participate in any insurance plans, nor do we participate in Medicaid or PeachCare.

Our Mission

Welcome to the pediatric dental office of Drs. Catharine A. Enright,

Stacy T. Piedad and Andrew D. Shoemaker, located in the Buckhead area of Atlanta, Georgia. Superior oral health is vital for a child’s development, and we’re here to help every step of the way.

 

We are committed to making your child’s first dental visit a pleasant and comfortable one. We understand the importance of establishing a good oral hygiene regimen early in a child’s life, and we provide children with the necessary knowledge and treatment to maintain a healthy smile.

 

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a dental home for our patients. Along with the American Dental Association, The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Academy of Pediatrics we recommend the age one dental visit so that we can educate and instruct families in proper oral health care for their children. We believe in the prevention, not just treatment, of dental disease and malocclusion in children from birth through high school age.  Our goals are to make your child’s experience in our office a positive one which is free of anxiety and fear and to promote oral health which will last a lifetime.

Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric Dentistry is one of the nine recognized dental specialties of the American Dental Association. Our doctors have completed two years of additional specialized training (after the required four years of dental school) to prepare them for treating a wide variety of children’s dental problems. Dr. Enright, Dr. Piedad and Dr. Shoemaker are also trained and qualified to care for patients with special health care needs. Both of our doctors are board certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry meaning they have not only successfully completed accredited training, but have also undergone a voluntary examination designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills & experience requisite to the delivery of quality patient care.

 

Everyone at Buckhead Pediatric Dentistry uses positive reinforcement and child friendly descriptions to help your child feel at ease during the dental procedure. We make individualized recommendations depending on your child’s age, ability to cooperate, and type of treatment needed. The treatments provided take the dental needs and behavioral aspects into consideration.
