Children’s Dentistry with Sedation: The parents of this adorable little girl had to come half way across California to find a dentist who shared their concern of the health of their daughter. They did not want mercury and other metals planted into their kid, even in baby teeth that will eventually fall out. They understood, as does Dr. Sarkissian, that the early formative years are most important for the future health of their child.
Children’s dentistry: Making a baby tooth extraction fun and distracting a young girl to overcome her fears. We use the honest approach in giving the shot, a shark fossil tooth is employed in some silly scene, and eventually, the child holds the forceps herself and is guided to extract her own tooth.
