 Nicole Byrne, D.M.D.
Pediatric Dentistry

 

 

 

Welcome to the pediatric dentistry practice of Dr. Nicole M. Byrne.  Our office is a place where children feel at home and start their journey for a lifetime of great oral health.  The dental needs of children and adolescents are very specific.  Our practice has the experience and compassion to tend to both aspects.  We build trust and confidence with our patients as well as educate parents and caregivers- a combination that leads to fantastic results.  Our office focuses on prevention, early detection and treatment of dental diseases in children. We try to make your child's visits as enjoyable as possible.  We will provide your child with toys, games, "cool sunglasses", movies, music and when necessary "laughing gas" and/or preoperative medication for anxiety.  Our goal is to guide your child into a healthy dental future with no dental fear or anxiety.  We look forward to meeting your child!

                                                                                                     

YOUR CHILD'S FIRST DENTAL VISIT

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), your child should visit the dentist by his/her 1st birthday. You can make the first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive. Your child should be informed of the visit and told that the dentist and their staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions. The less to-do concerning the visit, the better.

It is best if you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as needle, pull, drill or hurt.  Pediatric dental offices make a practice of using words that convey the same message, but are pleasant and non-frightening to the child.

If your child is over the age of 3, we ask that you allow them to accompany our staff through the dental experience. We are all highly experienced in helping children overcome anxiety.  Separation anxiety is not uncommon in children, so please try not to be concerned if your child exhibits some negative behavior. This is normal and will soon diminish.  Studies and experience have shown that most children over the age of 3 react more positively when permitted to experience the dental visit on their own and in an environment designed for children.
