A child's first visit to the dentist should be enjoyable. Children are not born with a natural fear of the dentist, but they can fear the unknown. Our office makes a special effort to use pleasant, non-frightening, simple words to describe each treatment. We want you and your child to feel at ease from the moment your family arrives at our office. The more you and your child know about the first visit, the better you will feel.
Dr Donohue is a parent and understands the importance of educating kids about taking care of their teeth to prevent cavities. She also evaluates children to appropriately time orthodontic (braces) treatment, so they can wear braces the shortest duration possible. Every child is different and she takes a unique approach to each and every child. If necessary, she will refer a child to the pediatric dentist if they should require more complex care.
