The office at ABC pediatric dentistry is bright, colorful, and has a very open concept. It is a place designed for children. The first thing patients notice when they walk in are the building blocks and toys. They can also see the giant glass windows that allow them to look into the north cleaning bay. The purpose of this is to lead by example. They can see other children getting their teeth cleaned, so they feel more comfortable letting us clean their teeth. Each colored chair has a TV placed above it and the children get to choose from one of four different Disney movies for the day. Our main job is to use behavior management techniques to help children feel comfortable while getting their teeth cleaned. This will create positive memories and make future cleanings and procedures easier.
