At Parkview Pediatric Dentistry, we are a pediatric dental specialty office.
Our doctors and staff are passionate about treating your greatest assets, your children. Parkview Pediatric Dentistry was founded in 2013 and is a locally owned private practice with the mission to provide Exceptional care for all of God’s children. We believe that every child is unique and perfectly created. As specialists in pediatric dentistry we realize that there is no cookie cutter way to best treat a child. Because of this, we work with your family as a whole to determine the best care for YOUR CHILD.
Our offices are designed with your family in mind. You will find parent seating areas throughout our offices to allow you to accompany your child for all their visits. We have multiple play areas for children as well as a “Little Free Library” that is stocked with fun books for you and your children to read.
First and foremost at Parkview Pediatric Dentistry we care about creating a positive environment where all children can master the dental appointment and enjoy their dental visits. A primary focus of our practice is prevention. Tooth decay is the #1 disease of childhood. We use scientifically proven methods and guidance to help prevent this devastating disease. Please talk with us about ways to prevent tooth decay, otherwise known as “Sugar Bugs” ( See Terminology Section )
At Parkview Pediatric Dentistry everything we do is aimed at improving your child’s dental experience. Because of this we use kid friendly terminology that focuses on positive and relatable items that children can easily understand. We try to avoid words that scare the child due to previous experiences. Please support us by NOT USING negative words that are often used for dental care. These include:
|Don’t Use||OK to Use|
|High Speed Dental Drill||Mr. Whistles|
|Slow Speed Dental Drill||Mr. Bumpy|
|Bite Block (to assist opening)||Tooth Chair|
|Shot||Blowing a Bubble|
|Nitrous Oxide||Happy Air, Silly Gas|
|Dental Exam||Counting Teeth|
|Cavity or Decay||Sugar Bugs|
|Pull a tooth||Wiggle a tooth|
|Cut out decay||Chase out sugar bugs|
|Silver Crown||Tooth Hat, Princess Crown, Ironman Hat|
Understanding this list will help you understand your child’s description of the dental experience. Our intention is not to “trick” your child, it is to create an experience that is positive. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us build a positive dental experience for your child.
