Our highly trained team strives to make each child’s dental experience a positive one. Our goal is to turn a routine visit to the dentist into a fun adventure to a new place by making every child feel special and welcome. Our crew is trained to minimize patient anxiety through careful handling of instruments, thorough explanations and child-appropriate demonstrations of procedures whenever possible. Additionally, every crew member has cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification, as well as training in the safe use of nitrous oxide.
