Can I stay in the exam room with my child?

At our pediatric dental office, we know that a trip to the dentist in Decatur, IL can be a challenge for both you and your child. This is why we work hard to help your child feel comfortable and safe from theyoung boy getting dental exam l dentist decatur il moment they walk into our dental office.

Your Child's Safety and Comfort Is Our Highest Priority

Tours of the game room and dental office give children a chance to see who we are and what we do. Our caring dental team makes sure to use kid-friendly terms and explanations so that your child doesn’t feel overwhelmed or anxious when introduced to new experiences. One of the reasons we do this is that they are not afraid to see Dr. Bret or the dental hygienist on their own.

When we see children without their parents in the room, we have found that they are often more relaxed and helpful when asked to follow directions. This independence empowers children to feel like they are in charge of their own dental hygiene!

After their dental appointment, a member of our team will catch you up on everything that happened while your child was with Dr. Bret, including any instructions about expectations until the next visit.
