Drs. Papineau and Farthing strive to treat each and every child in our office as if they were our own. Each child is treated with respect, our undivided attention, and compassion. We use lots of positive reinforcement and encouragement in our office. Prizes and stickers also help make dental visits fun!
Our office uses lots of positive reinforcement when interacting with your child. Prior to your child’s upcoming dental appointment, we encourage you to use the same positive attitude when discussing their dental visit.
We do, however, recognize that dental anxiety is very real. If your child has anxiety about their dental appointment, we recommend discussing that with our staff and doctors. As pediatric dentists, we are specially trained on how to guide children through their dental treatment. Most children become much more relaxed while interacting with our warm, caring staff in our fun, child-friendly environment. In addition to the standard behavior management techniques, other treatment options to treat children with anxiety exist. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and sedation options are offered for children with severe anxiety issues.
Our entire dental team is dedicated to your child's health and helping maintain his or her beautiful smile for many years to come. We look forward to getting to know you and your family. Please contact our Indianapolis pediatric dental practice to learn more about the dental care we provide and schedule an appointment.
