At the dental office of G.R. Sheumaker Jr. DDS, our family dentistry services are located in the North Lakeland, Florida area!
Family Dentistry in Lakeland – If you are a parent and are looking for a dentist to whom you can bring your whole family, then look no further! Your children will feel comfortable receiving family dental care from our friendly and caring staff members, who will help them develop a healthy attitude about going to the dentist.
Before you bring in your child to receive dental care from us, there are several things that you as a parent can do to prepare him or her. First, make the appointment during a time of a day that your child will be awake, happy, and well-rested. If your child generally takes a nap during their scheduled appointment time, they may not be willing to cooperate with the dentist and hygienists at our office. We are willing to come up with a convenient appointment time for you that will work well with your child’s schedule.
Secondly, when you are talking about visiting the dentist with your child, be positive. For example, tell your young child that the dentist caring for them will use special tools to work on their mouth. And lastly, listen to your child about any fears they are having about visiting the dentist.
If your child is scared about a visit to the dentist, we promise that our family dentistry service will work with you to obtain the best treatment and results. As a family dentistry practice in the Lakeland, Florida area, our staff is dedicated to the dental needs of your entire family.
