We invite you to relax in the reception room and enjoy a few minutes to yourself. Feel free to share your experience with us so that we can better meet any unique concerns of you or your child.
Thanks to advancements in digital technology, we’re able to capture X-rays that use extremely low levels of radiation while enhancing the resolution of the images captured. By taking X-rays at your child’s checkup, we can thoroughly assess areas that aren’t clinically visible during a visual exam. Such as:

Some of the different emergencies that we see include:
Children are naturally inquisitive. Fear of the dentist usually comes from not knowing or understanding what is going to happen next.
That’s why we use a Tell-Show-Do approach to basic procedures like cleanings, X-rays and exams. Your child can touch and feel some of the instruments (such as a mirror or suction) to create a sense of familiarity before their care begins.
Nitrous Oxide (“Laughing Gas”)
Analgesia is used in most restorative procedures, such as fillings and crowns. Nitrous oxide is the analgesic of choice, as it is fast-acting and extremely safe. The soft nosepiece slips into place and your child breathes a fruity-scented air while we work on their teeth. It can make some children feel sleepy, giggly or tingly in their fingers and toes.
General Anesthesia /Sedation for Special Cases
Some children require actual sedation for their dental procedure, either due to special needs or medical concerns. Our pediatric dentist can complete large or complex cases at a hospital setting with anesthesia experts on staff.
Nervous Parents? We Can Help With That, Too!
If you had a bad experience with the dentist growing up, your anxiety could easily be projected onto your child without you realizing it. Our Pediatric Dentist wants you to feel just as relaxed as your child that we’re seeing. Through close communication with you and your family, we’re able to ease the minds and hesitations of parents that may not have experienced positive dental care while growing up.
