A Pediatric Dentist's Best Friend

By Dr. Peter Markov, Pediatric Dentist and Owner at VK Pediatric Dentistry, Arlington, VA

Pediatric Dental Assistants are the best!

#1 They help keep your child calm, cool and collected!

Children can be nervous or experience some level of anxiety when visiting the dentist. Pediatric dental assistants do their best to get your child through every appointment whether they are blowing bubbles, making jokes, or being your child’s secret confidant. They tend to be with your child for the entire appointment.

#2 Capturing Tooth Selfies

X-rays, what we like to call tooth selfies, can be intimidating to kids, but they are important to take to show potential issues that we can’t see with an oral evaluation. In pediatric dentistry, capturing x-rays can be difficult, regardless of a child’s age. Having a good dental assistant helps your child get x-rays, even at an early age.

#3 Show and Tell

It’s important to not only tell children how to brush their teeth but to show them visually. At VK Pediatric Dentistry, our dental assistants are expertly trained on giving advice on how to maintain good oral hygiene. They show your children how to brush and floss their teeth using relevant, age appropriate props and make sure your children know how to care for their teeth properly.

#4 Infection Control

Pediatric dental assistants help keep your child healthy by not only taking care of your child’s teeth, but also by preventing the spreading of germs. They sterilize all the equipment and instruments used to make your child’s teeth sparkle, making sure everything is wiped down and germ free.
