BEHAVIOUR MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES

Fear and anxiety regarding dental treatment is a common concern for both parent and child alike.  Our dental team utilizes a variety of different approaches and, in most situations, will be able to accurately assess your child’s developmental level, dental attitudes, and temperament to predict their reaction to treatment.

 

The child who presents with oral/dental pathology and noncompliance is always a challenge. Through communication, our dental team can allay fear and anxiety, teach appropriate coping mechanisms, and guide the child to be cooperative, relaxed, and self-confident in the dental setting.

Successful behavior guidance enables the oral health team to perform quality treatment safely and efficiently and to nurture a positive dental attitude in the child. A variety of options, ranging from non-pharmacological to pharmacological methods are available depending on the needs and temperament of your child.
