Our Accommodating Team Loves Kids & It Shows
Many of our team members have children of their own. In fact, Dr. James Jelinek’s son Andrew is also a dentist and works alongside his dad! So they know how to handle everything from off-the-wall questions to the occasional temper tantrum. We aren’t one of those dental offices where young kids are simply tolerated.
We Have Perks That Kids Will Enjoy
Our waiting room has a special area for youngsters, complete with toys and books they will enjoy. At the of end of every visit they will receive a prize.
We Won’t Rush Your Child Into Anything
As Dr. James Jelinek explains in this video, we take the time to do a slow introduction to new things like the dental chair and our equipment. We explain everything in terms your kids can appreciate. For example, we call our suction device “Mr. Thirsty.” Nothing is ever forced. We use a “tell, show, do” approach to introducing services like cleanings.
Your Child Is Welcome at Your Appointment
We think the best way to introduce your child to the dentist is to bring them along with you to one of your routine appointments. We’ll do whatever we can to facilitate this! Just mention it to us when you call to schedule your visit.
