What if my Child is Very Nervous?

As pediatric dentists, we receive extensive training in creating an atmosphere where your child can comfortably receive treatment. We select behavior management techniques appropriate for each child. For the especially nervous child we offer in-office sedations, including oral sedation protocols, as well as utilizing a nurse anesthetist for more complicated cases. For patients with special health care needs and very young children, we offer general anesthesia in a hospital setting. Our goal is the same for each child; a successful outcome in a safe environment.
