Dr. Shepherd on Treating Families Read Transcript
One of the great things for families in our practice is that, because it's a larger practice, we have six different hygienists. Oftentimes parents want to come and bring their kids to a dental appointment, but if there's only one hygienist in the office, they are sometimes there for several hours, or they've got to come four different times to get everybody taken care of. We got one family in our practice who has six kids. They come and all six kids are seen at the same time and mom is seen just after them, so they're able to get everybody taken care of in a very short period of time.
That's one of the great features for families, is just that you can save a fair amount of time. Like most dental offices, we have a toy box or something fun for the kids where they can pick a prize. We really try to keep it entertaining for the kids so that they feel comfortable and make sure that their first dental experiences are healthy and happy ones so that they're not traumatized and scarred for life. We realize that the older patients we see that have dental anxiety usually have that because they had a bad experience as a kid. Our whole aim with kids is to make sure that they never have a bad dental experience in our office.
