Dental Anxiety in Children
Pediatric dentists have special training in helping anxious children feel secure during their visit to the office. Pediatric dental offices are designed for a child’s comfort. Our staff members are friendly and love children, which helps a child feel comfortable.
Young children may feel more confident when parents stay close during treatment. With older children, doctor-child communication is often enhanced if parents remain in the reception room. Ultimately, it is most important that your child gets the treatment done in a manner that helps them and to help them keep a positive outlook on future dental visits.
