Our staff is highly trained in the orthodontic field. We ask that you allow your child to accompany our staff through the orthodontic appointment. We are highly experienced in helping children overcome anxiety. Separation anxiety is not uncommon in children, so please try not to be concerned if you your child exhibits some negative behavior. This is normal and will soon diminish. Studies and experience have shown that most children over the over the age of 3 react more positively when permitted to experience the orthodontic visit on their own and in an environment designed for children.
