Dental anxiety is incredibly common, but going to the dentist doesn’t have to be a negative experience. KDC has the friendly staff and necessary resources to make your visit positive!
Kawartha Dental Clinic is the ONLY dental clinic in Peterborough with an operating room.
Roughly 16 years ago, Dr. Foster saw the need for an OR and started making the change. So many adults and children experience dental anxiety, usually stemming from a negative childhood experience. It’s especially important to create a positive experience as child to avoid future anxiety.
Depending on the situation, the operating room can be incredibly helpful in treating various dental issues.
I got to chat with7 year old, super-hero Khaiden and his mom Christine. Khaiden was at KDC to visit the OR for the second time. This time, he’s getting a cavity filled. Their previous experience was wonderful and the staff were incredible as always. Although Khaiden was a little nervous, he was also very brave.
Dr Mason Sokary admitted, he hasn’t always been great with kids. However, since becoming a dad, things have definitely changed. His daughter has an intellectual disability and he couldn’t imagine trying to work on her without the OR as an option. It’s a game changer for many parents with children who need dental work.
Although the OR isn’t always the first choice, it’s an option that’s readily available.
Another thing I love about KDC – they accept all kinds of insurance, including healthy smiles!
All patients are welcome and there’s no referral needed. Took book your consultation, give them a call at 705-743-1851.
