Relieving Dental Anxiety

Doctor Erik Rooklidge on relieving dental anxiety Read Transcript

Do you have to coax your child out of the car and into the building at the dentist? If you’d like help relieving dental anxiety so your child can get the dental care they need, contact your favorite Murray, UT dentists at Dentistry for Children today!

We have assembled a compassionate team at all three of our locations to help put your little ones at ease! Children also enjoy our kid-friendly, hi-tech office and often benefit from dental sedation to calm their dental anxiety.

Compassionate Team

Unlike other dental offices that serve patients of all ages, Dr. Erik Rooklidge and our other Murray, UT dentists focus on pediatric dentistry. Because quality dental care for children doesn’t just boil down to clinical expertise, we have assembled a calming, soothing team specially trained in treating children.

We will listen carefully to your children’s concerns and provide comfortable, gentle treatments to improve their smiles!

Amenities & Advanced Technologies

To improve your child’s overall experience, we have equipped our offices with:

  • TVs mounted in every care room so your child can enjoy a movie
  • Video game systems for your kids to play with in the reception area
  • Playhouses for your children to play in

We have also invested in state-of-the-art dental technology to make treatments more precise and pleasant. Here are a couple of the cutting-edge tools we use:

  • A Solea CO2 laser, which simultaneously numbs the tooth and removes decay so we can perform a tooth filling
  • Digital X-rays, which allow us to get a clear view of your child’s oral health with a fraction of the radiation of traditional X-rays

Safe Dental Sedation For Kids

Sometimes a reassuring voice and comfort options aren’t enough to relieve dental anxiety. If this is the case, we offer three forms of dental sedation:

  • Nitrous oxide
  • Oral conscious sedation
  • IV sedation

Treat your kids to stress-free dental care – call your trusted Murray, UT dentists at Dentistry for Children today for help relieving dental anxiety. You can also use our online form.
