Dr. McDonald is always great with my anxious 8yo. Dr. McDonald is always patient with her and talks to her to calm her down. Always is aware of her mood changes and let's her know what she's doing, with which item or tool. McDonald has been especially helpful at the dental care and work my child needs for up coming braces and how to handle the situation for my child's anxiety. She's always choosing the best option for her to calm her worries about dentistry.
