Your child deserves a welcoming and comfortable environment that will promote a positive attitude toward dentistry. We believe in building a relationship with your child and using the Tell-Show-Do method:
We explain in kid-friendly terms what we will be doing,
We show the basic instruments we use,
Then we proceed with the exam or procedure.
We believe with the proper environment, explanation, and relationship, children respond well to exams and treatment without distractions such as television or restraints such as papoose boards. As a parent, you are always welcome to be at your child’s side during exams and procedures.
At Southmoor Pediatric Dentistry, we believe it is the doctor’s responsibility to see your child’s treatment—whether preventative or restorative—through to completion.
Your child’s cleaning and x-rays will typically be conducted by one of our registered dental hygienists, who are college-educated, tested, and licensed. Our four doctors rotate between our two offices and each doctor’s dedicated assistant rotates with them.
The doctor will always complete the care. Likewise, only a doctor will place and finish fillings and crowns.
Southmoor Pediatric Dentistry follows and upholds all HIPAA and OSHA regulations and standards.
