One of the most important things to search for in a pediatric dental office is that the dentists are board certified and have the extra training to be able to work with children. The staff should make your children comfortable when they come in for a visit. Here are some indications that you have hired a great pediatric dentist.
An excellent pediatric dental office will have a variety of toys and entertainment devices. A pediatric dental office usually will have televisions, puzzles, books, and other things to help children relax. The staff should be friendly and kind to your children. Do they work hard to engage your children in conversations?
They should explain procedures to your children. Even an X-ray can be a daunting process for younger children, and the dental assistants can help them to be calm. Is the dentist friendly, informative and engaging? They should help your children understand the importance of properly caring for their oral health.
A regular exam and cleaning may not be difficult but getting a shot and a cavity filled can be daunting to younger children. What does the dentist do in order to help your child feel calm? Do they provide nitrous oxide gas to calm their nerves? Therefore it is important to discuss the different dental procedures to children and parents alike. Doe the pediatric dentist explain all the procedures to you and do you feel comfortable with their suggestions for treatment?
The availability of emergency appointments if your child ends up with a painful tooth is a must-have in the event of your children having a loose tooth or broken tooth or other emergencies. Will the dentist be able to help them?
