If your child needs just about any type of dental treatment and you care about it being a positive experience I can help.
I provide a very wide range of dental treatments for children (and adults) while also keeping your child comfortable and safe with sedation or general anaesthesia. That is my Certified Specialty.
Your child’s early dental visits are important for many reasons. One of these is that children who have pleasant experiences are more likely to have a favorable outlook towards dental and medical care throughout their lives. This is one reason why my first priority is for your child to have a positive treatment experience.
Prior negative experiences with other medical professionals are known to adversely affect your child’s future behavior. Children become apprehensive and develop anxiety quite easily and use these feelings to develop behavior towards other of life’s events. Help your child understand that this visit will be different if they have had a previous negative experience.
"The heart of a child is a mystical and innocent thing. It is usually trusting of those it knows and receives love but is marred by wounds of the thoughtless part of the world that does not always know how best to nurture or defend it. During times of illness it is especially vulnerable to being left hollowed if left ignored while work is done to make the child physically well again."
