Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sapir "My practice philosophy incorporates the parents as partners in their children's oral health. The parent is invited into the treatment room. We strive to instill a positive attitude to dentistry that will accompany our young patients for the rest of their life. There are many behavioral techniques that can be used to gain cooperation and it is tailored to the specific child and situation. Not every misbehaving child should land up in the operating room under general anesthesia! We will do our best to provide the finest dental experience that would fit your child's needs. Every single one of our patients gets individualized attention! "
