Dr. Billy Metcalf of Children’s Dentistry of Amarillo, who has 15 years of pediatric-dentistry experience underneath his lab coat, scrutinizes and treats teeth of all ages within a comfortable, kid-friendly office. The 30–45 minute dental visit kicks off with a comprehensive exam in which the doc dives into mouths on a hunt for cavities, plaque, and Lego buildup. A quartet of investigative x-rays peers further into chatter factories to unveil ailments naked to the human eye, such as tooth decay or abnormalities. To finish the treatment, pearly whites receive a thorough scouring and a splash of enamel-saving fluoride. Prior to their exam, patients can relax in the office’s waiting room stocked with cartoon-casting big screens, video games, and biographies of William Colgate.
Children’s Dentistry of Amarillo
With more than 16 years of experience and specialized training in child development and psychology, Dr. Billy Metcalf handles the fears of kids as effectively as he removes plaque and tartar. He believes it is important for young people to establish a good relationship with dentists early in life so that they grow up viewing dental visits positively. To do this, Dr. Metcalf looks to make first experiences as pleasant as possible, keeping kids comfortable by avoiding such anxiety-inducing technical terms as needle, drill, and Thanksgiving-ruining monster tooth. Instead, big-screen televisions chatter overhead with cartoons, and laughter drifts from kids in the waiting room as they romp through provided video games.
