We do this because our experience and studies have shown that children 3 years and older react more positively when they are allowed to be independent and have their dental experience in a child-friendly atmosphere. This means that for routine cleanings and other minor treatments, your child will be taken care of in our open bay area. This allows for each child to feel at ease seeing other children doing the same thing. For the safety and privacy of other patients in the treatment areas, we may place you and your child in a private room, if one is available, for care and treatment if it seems best for you to stay with your child.
We do ask that. if you are going to prepare your child for their visit, please do not use terms such as “needle”, “shot”, “pain.” or “pull”. We have great expertise in conveying to your child what will happen in very pleasant and child-friendly terms.
