Going to the dentist can be stressful, especially for kids, who might be anxious and nervous and not completely understand what is happening. Good experiences with the dentist as a kid makes for good dental health and less anxiety around dental appointments as an adult.
That’s why it’s so important that you choose the right dentist and why Northchase is the best kids dentist in Wilmington.
Experienced, Friendly Staff
At Northchase, we pride ourselves on the friendly, trusting relationships that we develop with our patients, no matter how young they are. Many of our employees, including owner and principal dentist, Dr. Kohut, have children, so know how difficult it can be to put them at ease when they are at an appointment.
You’re guaranteed a friendly face at every stage of your child’s appointment, who will talk to them in a way they can understand. We aim to make everyone as comfortable and calm as possible so that in the future, the dentist becomes just another routine appointment for them, not something to fear.
A Welcoming Atmosphere
Kids aren’t known for their patience. Sitting about waiting for a dental appointment can be stressful for them (and you), especially if your appointment isn’t routine and they are experiencing any pain. Our waiting areas are airy, spacious and a great place for kids to wait for their appointments. We have plenty of books and toys to keep them busy and help them relax.
We try to keep our exam rooms as comfortable as possible for kids by not making everything look too clinical. There’s also plenty of space for mom and dad to be in there, so they don’t feel alone or that they have been left.
Convenient For Families
If you’re looking for the best kids dentist in Wilmington, you need a dentist that is convenient and works for you and your family.
When setting up Northchase Family Dentistry, Dr. Kohut wanted a practice that was accessible to everyone. In order to fit around work, school, and family commitments, we’re also open on weekends and evenings. Perfect for busy families.
Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what the mom of one of our young patients had to say:
“This was the very first visit to a dentist for my three-year-old son and Tammy and Dr. Kohut made it such a positive experience. There were no tears, only bright smiles. The fact that they’re open on the weekend was such a lifesaver for me since I work Monday-Friday. The office was neat and clean and the experience as a whole was wonderful. I highly recommend this dentist’s office.”
Supporting Parents Too
Children’s oral health is more than simply a trip to the dentist, it’s ensuring that they know the importance of looking after their teeth and brushing regularly. We also know that parents often need support and education to be able to make this happen. We’re here for you, ready to give you any advice or help that you need, we’re on your team.
