We are pleased to offer a fun facility and the expertise and training of our Great Beginnings staff and pediatric dentists to provide care to our patients. Our staff obtains the cooperation of our child or adolescent patients by using warmth, friendliness, persuasion, humor, charm, gentleness, kindness and understanding. There are several behavior management techniques used by our doctors and pediatric dental staff during a visit with each patient.
These techniques include:
- Modeling from other patients
- Positive reinforcement
- Distraction — music, pictures on the ceiling, movies
- Helpful tools — mouth pillows, rubber raincoats
- Patients become the doctor and fix Ellie the Elephant’s (a puppet) teeth
During your new patient visit, we will explore the options that are best for your child.
