Dr. Billy Metcalf and the crew at Children’s Dentistry of Austin cultivate a kid-centric dental experience with games, TVs, and treatments designed to instill preventive oral-hygiene habits. The 30- to 45-minute session begins with a comprehensive exam, during which the dentist wields sterilized, state-of-the-art equipment to help search mouths for potential ailments and misplaced toothpaste caps. Four x-rays enhance the efficacy of the examination by exposing hard-to-see anomalies. A thorough cleaning then scrubs away grime and tartar, and a fluoride treatment strengthens chompers and preempts decay. A verdant, lifelike tree graces the treatment area, where TVs hover above each examination chair to distract youngsters from the treatment. In the waiting room, parents can utilize complimentary WiFi, coffee, and wine as youngsters play video games, watch movies, and switch out air-guitar strings with dental floss.
