I love my patients and their parents and I am happy to know that they love me back. Providing comfortable, painless, enjoyable dental experience for my little patients is a challenging job. I can proudly say that I am good at it based on all the positive feedback and words of appreciation from numerous happy parents in person.
I use multiple approaches in order to establish a bond with my patients. Positive reinforcement, modeling, distraction, tell-show-do. In majority of cases I am able to eliminate fears even in most scared patients. Over the years I was able to provide successful, pleasant and painless dental experiences for patients that were offered general anesthesia or sedative medications by other dentists, without using such drastic measures.
But no child is the same. I know it as a professional and as a mother. When all other methods of behavior management are exhausted and the child seems to be very strong minded, I sometimes ( very rarely, as this is very unusual situation) use firmness and set rules to obtain cooperation. I always ask parents to help me and to try to stay on the same page. As the team we usually achieve success as no one knows their child better than the parent.
