Make Teeth Cleaning a Breeze with the Right Dentist
I vividly remember my dentist’s office as a child: big, uncomfortable couches in the waiting room, stacks of magazines that I didn’t find very interesting, and cold, dark exam rooms illuminated only by a single, glaring light overhead. My dentist was nice enough, but it clearly wasn’t a space designed for kids.
Once I became a parent, I was determined to create a better dental experience for my children. While getting your teeth cleaned may not be a favorite activity, finding a kid-friendly provider can make a big difference.
Kalamazoo offers a number of dentists that make children’s comfort level a priority. Exam rooms are open, colorful spaces. Waiting rooms have books and toys to pass the time. Checkups are thorough but brief and may include toys to hold, sunglasses to wear, or music to listen to.
