Do You Allow Parents Back For Treatment?

Dr. Brett and his staff encourage parents to accompany their children for all new patient visits and subsequent cleaning visits.  For treatment visits (fillings, extractions, etc) parents are always welcome; however, Dr. Brett recommends parents and other caregivers remain in the waiting room.  Experience has shown that children tend to do better when their attention can be focused in one direction.  Dr. Brett has extensive training in behavior management and will work with your child in a way that allows them to understand each step of the visit. Part of the goal is to give children the confidence that they can ‘do it on their own’.  There’s nothing better than seeing a proud child leaving after treatment, eager to tell mom or dad how great they did!  In preparation for your child’s visit, we ask that you avoid words like “drill”, “needle”, or anything similar that may scare a child.  Dr. Brett and his staff will present things in a more child-friendly manner.
