How will our doctors help my child feel comfortable?
There are many methods to help make your child comfortable with dental treatment. Our doctors and staff utilize the “tell-Show-do” technique which is very effective for children. Coaching, distraction (televisions in the ceiling), open concept for patient modelling, and parent participation are other possibilities to give your child confidence in dentistry. If the dental work is extensive or the child is below the age of cooperation a general anaesthetic will be recommended so that your child has a fresh start on the road to dental health. If the treatment is to be done in our dental office the use of Nitrous Oxide (laughing Gas) and the no needle laser will also help to keep your child calm during filling appointments.
