What if my child is nervous/anxious?

We understand that some children may experience nervousness or anxiety when it comes to dental visits. Our team at North Shore Smiles Pediatric Dentistry is dedicated to creating a warm, child-friendly environment where your child feels at ease. We take a gentle and compassionate approach, focusing on building trust and ensuring their comfort throughout the appointment. Dr. Tiana and our staff are experienced in working with children, including those with dental anxiety. We employ various techniques, such as explaining procedures in a child-friendly manner, using positive reinforcement, and offering distractions during treatment. For children with heightened anxiety, we may recommend nitrous oxide sedation (laughing gas) to help them relax. Our goal is to provide a positive and stress-free dental experience for your child, fostering their trust and confidence in dental care.
