Growing healthy smiles! Dr. Brandon Shamblin is a Board Certified pediatric dentist who provides specialized superior quality dental care for infants, children, teens, and those with special needs.
The best preparation for your child’s first visit to our office is maintaining a positive attitude. Children pick up on adults’ apprehensions and if you make negative comments about trips to the dentist, you can be sure that your child will fear an unpleasant experience and act accordingly. Show your child the pictures of the office and staff on the website. Let your child know that it’s important to keep his/her teeth and gums healthy, and that the doctor will help do that. Parents can help prepare their child for the dental visit by explaining that Dr. Brandon will “Look, Count, and Clean” their teeth.
Remember that your pediatric dentist is specially trained to handle fears and anxiety, and our staff excels at putting children at ease during treatment. Please refrain from using words like “hurt”, “shot”, “needle”, or “pull”. Dr. Brandon and his staff never use these words when explaining treatment to our patients. Please join us in ensuring your child has a pleasant experience.
