The dental team at Palm Valley Pediatric Dentistry doesn't want children to grow up dreading the dentist. That's why they do everything they can to keep kids comfortable and happy during appointments. Before procedures, the team explains in non-scary terms what's going to be done and, during the procedure, deftly distracts patients from any surprising sensations with toys. Emphasizing positive reinforcement, they heap kudos onto brave soldiers throughout the visitation and reward them at the end with an electric toothbrush.

Backed by a degree from Temple University, School of Dentistry and a caring, listening ear, Dr. Sheyda Zahiri keeps smiles gleaming with regular checkups, endodontic interventions, and cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Zahiri relies on her kind chairside manner as she explains her procedures in detail, answers any questions, and demonstrates how to make friendship bracelets out of dental floss. Her patient list includes kids and seniors alike, as she is equally adept at painting on sealants as she is at helping older adults make the switch to dentures.
Eric L. Kerbs, DDS, oversees each of My Family Dental Centers' 10 office locations, where his experienced staff practices general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry services, including Invisalign, TMJ therapy, and in-office teeth-whitening treatments. Not content with resting on his laurels after earning his doctor of dental surgery from Virginia Commonwealth University and completing a one-year fellowship that focused on full-mouth reconstruction, Dr. Kerbs continually updates his expertise by furnishing each office with advanced equipment, staying on top of advances in his field, and periodically hiring a translator to help him interview teeth directly.
The skilled molar maintainers at Every Kid's Dentist keep children's mouth mountains free of cavities and crevasses with youth-friendly services. Bolster young one's budding bicuspids with an oral exam and cleaning, to give the old heave-ho to any tartar and plaque buildup, effectively clearing the way for optimum black-light reflection. The intensive pearly white inspection continues with a set of x-rays with bitewings, a film holder with a fin that simultaneously displays the innards of the upper and lower teeth. Before departing the dentist chair, tykes undergo an enamel-fortifying fluoride treatment to combat tooth decay, and walk away with an electronic toothbrush, designed to effectively dismantle plaque uprisings and rival the buzzing of any nearby bees.
The dental team at Waddell Family Dentistry made a list of reasons patients fear the dentist and then designed a practice expressly to cross out each one. It replaced metal drills with Waterlase hand pieces, which reduce the heat and vibration caused from metal rubbing against teeth. Before each procedure, team members educate their patients on what to expect, fielding any questions and arming them with detailed aftercare instructions. For patients who feel especially nervous, they administer a variety of oral and IV sedations and measure the half-life of each in accordance to the length of procedures in order to minimize posttreatment grogginess.
