My son was very scared and nervous for his first appointment. I called around to all the area dentists and located the cheapest (by A LOT) first exam for a child starting preschool. I was suprised when we arrived at the facility. It's amazing! My son was immediately put at ease playing in the big sand castle with some toys and watching the salt water fish tanks. The attention to detail in decorating is so thorough there is something for the kids to focus on in every area. The tech that saw our son was with him from start to finish of his appointment and you could tell the staff really enjoyed their jobs and working with kids. The cleaning, X-rays and check of his teeth was so upbeat and friendly he wasn't scared anymore! He got to pick out stickers, a prize and got a balloon! When we checked out we got a printed picture of him on their surfboard and wave with the appointment reminder on it and a magnet. So cool! I wish they took adults! Haha!
