Your first visit to Little Harpeth Children's Dentistry involves a few special steps so that we can get to know you. To understand what to expect, please read through this page. You'll find all the practical information you need, such as directions to our office, practice hours, payment policies and more. There's also background information about our committed staff and our first visit procedures. 

Please note ALL children seen must be FULLY vaccinated AND a birthparent must accompany them to the initial visit.

  • Exceed your expectations.

Patient Forms
Please complete the emailed/ texted forms in advance so we can expedite your first visit. It is REQUIRED that New Patient Paperwork is completed 3 days prior to your initial appointment. Failure to do so may result in the inability to see you at your scheduled time. Children are REQUIRED to be fully immunized to be seen here (ie. MMR, Tetnus). In todays climate, it has become harder for us to verify your dental insurance policy in a shortened time span and please be reminded that we do this as a courtesyYou are always responsible for what your dental policy does not cover as you purchased it.

In order to view or print these forms you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader installed. Click here to download it.


What To Expect
Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. It also will help relieve any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling. Educate yourself on your symptoms by reviewing the content on this Web site. 

All children seen MUST be up to date with their immunizations.
