My daughter was anxious about going in to get a cavity filled. Dr. Cretchfield and his staff set her at ease. She didn't even notice at all when he gave her the shot of novicaine. He doesn't use the words shot or anything that may spark anxiety. She did use Nitris to help relax her. He and the assistant talked her through the whole process. He is thorough to make sure the tooth is left smooth enough for a good bite after filling the tooth. The iffice staff is also friendly, patient, and professional. I have been takiing both my kids here for 10 years. We live Rocklin Kids Dentist. Both dentists, and all staff are good with kids and their parents.
