Different Processes for Different Needs
Children are not always immediately comfortable with new surroundings, which is why we encourage parents to be present with their infant and young children. We are happy to provide parents with guidance on a range of dental topics and will address concerns about gum and tooth health, effect of nutrition on oral health, and the best way to brush and floss.
Dr. Zotovich and his San Jose team want children to feel comfortable with dental visits, encouraging them to continue seeking dental care and maintain excellent oral health as they grow into adults. Children with special needs are handled with plenty of TLC. We offer sedation dentistry in special instances for those patients who are prone to anxiety and need extra help getting comfortable.
