So generally, dentistry in this office, or our pediatric office, you know, probably the most important thing that we try to focus on on every visit with kids is prevention. We want to make sure that these kids are doing what they need to do to prevent problems from happening. So we always talk about diet, and hygiene, and, you know, things they can do to have healthy teeth and mouths. And then beyond that, once we exit prevention, then it's usually just, you know, a lot of fillings. We do a lot of fillings and crowns. One thing with pediatric dentists— with pediatric dentistry is we do a lot of sedation, if we need to, so we'll do sedations in the office. Sometimes we'll take kids to a hospital or a surgical center to get treatment done if we need to but we don't have a lot of fancy procedures. It's just really, you know, fillings and then, of course, we watch their growth and development and making sure that their teeth are nice and pretty and straight and when it's time for them to get referred to an orthodontist, we're there to do that at the appropriate time.
