As a parent, there’s not a moment to spare. But when you visit a typical pediatric dental office, it’s unlikely you’ll find things are moving quickly.
For instance, you and your child may be forced to wait to check in to see the dentist. You also might need to fill out stacks of insurance paperwork to ensure you’re fully covered for your child’s dental treatments.
Although it may seem like you’re stuck at a pediatric dental office for hours, it is important to understand why you might need to wait.
At The Super Dentists, we understand adults and kids don’t like waiting, which is why we want to explain some of the most common challenges we face. That way, you can better understand why there may be a short wait between the time you arrive at one of our offices until your child is seen by Dr. Kami Hoss, Dr. Nazil Keri or any of The Super Dentists team.
Here’s a closer look at three of the biggest challenges we face with treating children, and how we try to overcome these issues.
The Super Dentists accepts all insurances, and we even strive to provide easy financing to help your child get the pediatric dental care he or she needs to enjoy an outstanding smile.
Having the ability to accept all insurances helps us differentiate ourselves from other pediatric dental offices. At the same time, however, it means we may require a few extra minutes to explain our insurance and financing options to patients.
- Fear of the Dentist
Visiting the dentist can be scary for adults and kids alike. We recognize that dentists are commonly associated with pain and anxiety, and as such, employ specialists who know how to help you and your child cope with fear of the dentist.
In some cases, frightened patients may scream, shout and make it difficult for our dentists to perform anything from a routine teeth cleaning to braces installation. This means that we’ll need to spend some extra time with a scared patient, ensuring he or she is fully supported and can enjoy a calm, relaxing experience with us.
- Expert Care
The patient wait time in any of our offices may vary, and we cannot guarantee that you’ll be able to walk in and receive immediate support. But once you visit with any of our pediatric dental professionals, we’ll do everything possible to ensure you are rewarded for your patience.
At The Super Dentists, we want to provide the best dental care possible and will be happy to support both you and your child in any way we can.
For example, if you have concerns or questions about a particular dental treatment, we’ll answer them. If you want to discuss financing for your child’s dental care, we’ll examine all of the options at your disposal. And if you want the best pediatric dental care available in the San Diego area, we’ll go above and beyond the call of duty to deliver it time and time again.
Remember, patience is a virtue. And if you stay calm, cool and collected while you wait, you and your child can enjoy an outstanding experience at any of our pediatric dental offices.
