Being With Your Child
We have carefully designed our office to be a kid-friendly, comfortable and fun environment. We complete our dental examination in an age-appropriate manner and work closely with children to gain their trust. We welcome your input on how you think your child will do best. We respect your child’s own rhythm and we encourage the child to watch one of our stuffed animals have a “tooth check”. Then we give your child oral hygiene instructions and explain how we count teeth. We also use age specific terms for the dental instruments so your child feels comfortable.
We believe that the dental appointment should be a fun and informative experience for your child and pleasant experience for you. We encourage you to be a part of your child’s dental examination so that the doctor can share his findings with you. We believe in teaching good oral hygiene principles to you and your child so that you can better instruct your child at home thus laying a foundation for good oral hygiene. Prevention, treatment and care at our practice involves coordination and cooperation between the dental team, the parents and the child.
