Sister and Sugar are our office pets. They provide unbelievable comfort to our littlest patients during a pediatric dentist appointment. As a result, fear is quickly turned into laughter and smiles.
TVs above our treatment chairs

Playtime while you wait
Take their minds off the anxiety of the pediatric dentist appointment with the iPads on the walls of our treatment area. Divert their attention to being creative. In addition, older kids can play video games for additional distraction.
Rewards for making it
Pick a treat out of the treat machine after a treatment or examination.
