About Brush Pediatric Dentistry
At Brush Pediatric Dentistry;, we look forward to helping you care for your child’s precious smile. As recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Academy of Pediatrics, Dr. Mira Albert encourages parents to bring their children in six months after the arrival of their first tooth or by their first birthday. Then, as your children grow and develop, we hope to instill in them good dental habits and hygiene. We want Brush Pediatric Dentistry; to be the dental home you know you can call for everything from routine visits to emergency care.
Fun for Everyone!
Not only do we want each visit to be educational, but we also do our best to ensure your kids actually have fun when they’re with us. We have a bright, colorful creative area for your kids to play around in, and our waiting area is filled with games and movies for older kids (and to keep you parents entertained, as well). Please take our online office tour to see the cheery, kid-friendly atmosphere Dr. Albert has worked so hard to design for her young patients.
Dr. Albert has also developed a special language that she uses to communicate with children. She has a fun word to replace almost every word that might elicit fear or apprehension in your children, and we recommend you, as parents, do the same. Together, we can make your children's dental visits fun. We believe it is your child's right to understand exactly what is happening, but we want to always communicate this in an age-appropriate manner. Let's not use the word shot, talk about pulling teeth, or mention needles. We make it a habit of using words that convey the truth about what is happening while using pleasant, non-frightening language. Dr. Albert will also explain complex procedures one step at a time to keep children from becoming overwhelmed by too many concepts at once.
