There are many methods to help children feel comfortable with dental treatment. Dr. Pike and her staff utilize the "Tell-Show-Do" technique which is very effective for children. Another technique that Dr. Pike uses is positive reinforcement, which is rewarding the child with compliments, praise, a hug or a prize.
All Children May Be Accompanied By A Parent*
Our primary goal is to deliver safe treatment for your child. Occasionally, a child may require more assertive forms of behavior management to protect the child from injuring themselves and to help the child get the quality dental care they need. These management techniques include the use of voice control, distraction techniques, the use of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and protective stabilization. Beyond these techniques, a child with disruptive behavior may need dental treatment with sedation or treatment in a hospital.
