Look for a Fun and Friendly Experience
Visiting the pediatric dentist’s office for the first time and every time should be a fun, special, and even memorable experience. Dr. Robbins’ office is truly one-of-a-kind; even magical, with beautiful, hand-painted murals, a real, super-fun tree house, a cave to hang out, and a magic tree full of prizes. Parents can join their children on the adventure. Some of our patients, now in college or even out in the working world, still remember fondly their very first visit to our office.
Go Beyond the Reviews
Checking out the reviews for pediatric dental specialists in your area is an excellent start but may only tell part of the story. Read all the reviews, no matter the star rating, to get a sense of the clinic and its service. Look for consistency of comments rather than the outliers.
Ask Other Pediatric Specialists
Ask around. Talk to your pediatrician, speech-language pathologist. Lactation consultant, occupational therapist, etc. What’s their experience? Different pediatric dentists may have different styles, different approaches, and different treatment options—beyond the standard procedures and equipment. Consider the best “fit,” the ideal care philosophy, and environment for your child.
Verify The Doctor’s Status As A Pediatric Dental Specialist
Lots of dentists will see children, but not all dentists are pediatric specialists. Also, not all pediatric dentists have undergone the advanced certification to be board certified. Some specialists, such as Dr. Robbins, have also completed post-doctoral fellowships at leading children’s hospitals and have taken advanced courses in new technologies, such as laser dentistry. Don’t hesitate to ask questions!
