The Most Anxious Children Enjoy Dental Visits With Us!

So many children who come to my office have unfortunately had some very upsetting and often traumatizing experiences at other dental practices. Sometimes it’s due to the fact that the child was brought to a general practitioner, rather than a pediatric dentist. Sometimes it’s because offices haven’t had the specialized training in the proper way to approach and treat a frightened child. We have many young patients who have come to us after unsuccessfully visiting 3-4 other offices and being told that they require sedation in order to receive dental care. My staff and I specialize in helping children receive dental treatment in an environment that will ease their fears and change how they view going to the dentist.

I have had extensive training in treating anxious children. I am Board Certified in Pediatric Dentistry by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. I am also certified to practice both conscious and operating room sedation treatment. My office takes the time to ease nervous children into their dental treatment. Many children who have been told they require sedation come to my office and do quite well, sometimes without sedation at all! It’s all in the approach you take with anxious young patients and being able to connect with them at their level in order to make them feel safe and cared for.

I have many clinical staff members who have been with my practice for 20-30 years and together we make a great team that kids love to visit! With today’s technologies and my expertise in treating anxious patients, there is no need for a child’s visit to the dentist to be a traumatizing and dreaded experience. We have televisions on the ceiling above my dental chairs, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help them relax, and I quite often even sing to my patients while performing their dental work! Come visit me and my staff to see why your child could actually look forward to going to the dentist!
