Lake Mary Pediatric Dentistry has a reputation for offering comprehensive pediatric dental care in a friendly, inviting, and professional environment. When you visit our practice, you’re not just another smile — you’re family!
Ours is a welcoming, exciting space: full of natural light and bright, fun colors. The minute you and your son or daughter step through the doors, you’ll be surrounded by smiles from our team members and fellow patients. There’s a lot of laughter in our office, too. We’re passionate about building real friendships with our patients and love sharing in their lives.
Ensuring Your Child’s Successful Visit
We ask that you allow your child to accompany our staff through the dental experience. However, parents are always welcome as observers. We are all highly experienced in helping children overcome anxiety. Separation anxiety is not uncommon in children, so please try not to be concerned if your little one exhibits some negative behavior. This is normal and will soon diminish.
Studies and experience have shown that most children over the age of three react more positively when permitted to experience the dental visit on their own and in an environment designed for children.
We find that the less “to-do” concerning the visit, the better. It is best if you refrain from using words around your child that might inspire unnecessary fear, such as “needle,” “shot,” “pull,” “drill,” or “hurt.” Our team makes a practice of using words that convey the same message, but are pleasant and non-frightening to children.
Dr. White, Dr. Thanh, and our entire dental team are dedicated to your youngster’s health and helping to maintain his or her beautiful smile for many years to come. We look forward to getting to know you and your family. Please contact our Lake Mary dental office to learn more about the dental care we provide and schedule an appointment.
