Why Children Love Oakville Place Dental Office
Going into a strange environment can be extremely distressing for a child, causing undue anxiety and fear. We work hard to make our environment friendly and welcoming to your child. Our team is experienced in treating children and we understand how to engage the child while performing dentistry duties such as cleanings , fillings, sealant, and other children’s dental procedures.
We know that many children fear going to the dentist because of the pain and discomfort associated with the visit. This is why we offer a number of options to make your child’s experience pain free, regardless of whether we are conducting a simple cleaning, filling a cavity, or pulling a baby tooth. This causes your child to feel more at ease and makes it easier for you to bring them into our office. It will also encourage your child to visit a dentist regularly, even as they grow older and move into adulthood.
Our office also has television sets mounted in each operatory as a fun distraction and provide PlayStation terminals. Recently we began to offer the dental vibe prior to dental anesthesia. This is a vibrating tool that minimizes any sensation of pain during the injection process . Its is very good for nervous children or nervous children at heart

We also encourage your child to be curious about their teeth which will induce them to be more conscious about how they care for them.
