Patient Comfort

We take pride in making your child’s dental experience as pleasant and comfortable as possible.  We will thoroughly present treatment options, explain our procedures, and educate you in the maintenance of your child’s oral health.  It is our goal to have you feel secure in the treatment of your child’s dental needs.

We use the latest techniques to ensure that your child is comfortable during each procedure.  Oral sedation and nitrous oxide are excellent options for the management of the child during dental treatment and effective pain control.  Nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas”, is a blend of two gases:  oxygen and nitrous oxide.  The delivery system is a soft nose that is placed over the child’s nose so they can inhale the nitrous oxide.  When inhaled, it is absorbed by the body and has a calming effect.  Throughout the procedure, your child will be breathing less nitrous oxide and more oxygen and by the end of the procedure it will be only oxygen.  Before your child leaves the dental chair, all of the nitrous oxide is out of your child’s system and they will feel as they did before the appointment began.

You are welcome to stay with your child in the treatment room for the procedure.  The best option for your child will be discussed with you during the treatment-planning consultation.

We know that your schedule is busy, and we try to be as accommodating as possible.  Dental treatment and the placement of appliances are always done before 1:00 p.m. as children do best in the morning because they are well rested.  We reserve after-school hours for preventive visits and orthodontic adjustments in order to accommodate as many patients and families as possible.

Our office is conveniently located in Anderson Township.  Our friendly and courteous staff will greet you and offer you a tour of our office.  We have televisions in our reception area and themed exam rooms.  While waiting in the reception area, children can enjoy playing games in our video cave.  A visit to our office always concludes with a smile and a toy.
