Why Choose Our Practice?

Image of children runningWhen it comes to picking a dentist, we know that you have options. Personalized, gentle, comprehensive patient care is our number one priority.

Here are just a few things that make our practice unique:

Kid-Friendly Environment

The hardest thing about getting treatment at the dentist, especially for young children, is managing fear and anxiety. Usually, this has to do with fear of the unknown.  At Grand Blanc Pediatric Dentistry, we practice proven methods that make for a positive treatment experience.  Our approach combines:

  • Kid-friendly vocabulary: In order to improve the chances of your child having a positive experience, we are selective with our use of words. Please support us by NOT USING negative words.

We commonly say “NO 4 LETTER WORDS ARE ALLOWED.” Examples of these are shot, hurt, pain etc. These words dramatically decrease our chance of a successful appointment.

Instead of: Use:
Examination Count Teeth
Suction Mr. Thirsty, straw
Explorer  Tooth Counter
Tooth cleaning Tickle teeth
Fluoride treatment Tooth vitamins
Needle/shot Sleepy juice/medicine
Drill Toothbrush/whistle/motorcycle
Cavity/decay Sugar bugs
Filling Tooth paint, princess tooth, superhero tooth
Pull or extract tooth Wiggle a tooth
Nitrous oxide Sweet air, fruit (i.e. cherry, grape) air

 

  • Show and tell demonstrations
  • Use of Nitrous Oxide/laughing gas

Care and Commitment

From the front office to the exam room, our practice is made up of professionals who take each child’s oral health very seriously. Using state of the art equipment designed with safety and efficiency in mind, we are able to offer top-notch care. As you walk through our office, you will notice that everything is clean, comfortable and thoroughly sterilized. Your safety and comfort are our priority.

Honesty and Affordability

We know that the cost of care can be confusing. In addition to offering a number of payment options to fit your budget, we also give you estimates on your treatment ahead of time. We participate with a variety of insurance plans and are happy to submit claims on behalf of our patients. We also offer dental financing options such as Care Credit to help fit your needs. We are happy to help you navigate your dental insurance and alternative payment options.

Easy Access to Dental Care and Information

We know that your time is valuable to you, and that’s why we offer dental appointment reminders and a quick turnaround time on calls and appointment requests. We are happy to answer any questions or concerns in the office, over the phone or via email.

Comprehensive Dental Care

At our practice, we are qualified to handle all aspects of your care, so you are always surrounded by people that you trust. If we must refer out, we promise to send you to carefully vetted colleagues who apply the same professional principles in their office that we do in ours.

Personalized Service

Our goal is to treat each patient as we would our own children.  At our practice, you aren’t just a patient. We take an interest in each child and their oral health needs.  We strive to create an inviting, fun, and educational environment.
