What Makes gbpd the BEST Children's Dentist Near Solon
Of course, training and experience are key. As pediatric dentists, Dr. Laura and Dr. Rachel both have two additional years beyond dental school. This additional education focused on understanding not only developing mouths in depth, but developing brains and motor skills as well. As a result, they know how to support children emotionally and physically during visits. As a result, children feel more relaxed during dental check-ups and treatments. Parents appreciate how this additional training also helps our doctors spot problems early, often saving children more extensive treatment later in life!
We use the latest dental technology and treatments.
Dentistry has come a long way in the last couple of decades! Indeed, a couple of options enable us to treat children’s cavities without the use of needles or drills! As anyone who’s ever had a filling knows, this development means less pain and fear for dental patients! Our two drill-free, needle-free dentistry options for kids are as follows:
- Laser Dentistry: We proudly are one of only two pediatric dentists in Northeast Ohio offering this exciting technology for kids.
- SDF Treatments: As easy as painting a tooth, silver diamine fluoride treatments enable us to stop decay in some teeth.
- Airway Dentistry: How your child breathes, eats, and swallows impacts how likely (or not!) they are to get cavities!
Our entire office is designed for your child’s comfort.
For instance, the waiting room welcomes children to leave their fear of the dentist behind as soon as they enter our doors with touchscreen games, books, blocks, and colorful art. Also, our exam and treatment chairs all have their own movie screens, so kids can watch their favorite show while we polish their smiles. Fun, colorful art and a prize tower just add to the fun, welcoming atmosphere for kids.
We’re involved in our community, so kids don’t fear the dentist.
The more kids can see their dentists as regular people–rather than scary masked monsters–the more they can relax when they visit us. Thus, we provide many opportunities for kids to get to know us as friends. For example, we love sponsoring and cheering on our local teams through Solon Early Childhood PTA (SECPTA), hosting an annual patient appreciation apple picking party, encouraging kids to swap their Halloween candy for cash at our annual candy buyback party, and more! We encourage families to participate in our free parties and events, so their kids look forward to seeing us.
We focus on prevention first and foremost.
We know what you’re thinking. If we prevent cavities, we might find ourselves out of jobs! Not true! We’d much rather stay in business educating kids and families how to maintain a healthy, cavity-free smile than by drilling and filling! Indeed, we pride ourselves in teaching our patients how to eat right and drink right to minimize cavities. Likewise, we love stressing proper brushing and flossing techniques, as well as explaining the importance of regular fluoride treatments. Of course, we’re here with gentle care when cavities do occur.
We practice a Tell, Show, Do (TSD) approach.
Kids are naturally curious, so we use that to our (and their!) advantage! When you child comes for a visit, we’ll teach them about our instruments and what we’re going to do before we ask them to open wide. In addition, we show them our equipment and let feel the tickle of the polisher or catch a glimpse of their smile in our mirror. Finally, then we do what we need to do. This simple approach goes a long way to let kids satisfy their curiosity and decrease any anxiety they may be feeling.
Our office is stress-free for parents, too.
As an independent office, we offer personal attention. Whether it’s answering questions about your child’s chipped tooth or your dental insurance, our friendly team is only a phone call away. Also, our office is easy to find. We’re right on the border of Solon, Ohio and Twinsburg. Coming from Solon, you’ll find us off the new traffic circle at what used to be the corner of Route 91 and Glenwood Drive. Our office is nestled behind the Heinen’s with plenty of free parking. Enjoy our free wifi and charging station while you’re visiting.
