Dr. Lisa Lazzara
Board Certified Pediatric Dentistry
Our office, as well as the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recommends that your child 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", "shot", "pull", "drill" or "hurt". The office makes a practice of using words that convey the same message, but are pleasant and non-frightening to the child.
We invite you to stay with your child during the initial examination. During future appointments, we suggest you allow your child to accompany our staff through the dental experience. We can usually establish a closer rapport with your child when you are not present. Our purpose is to gain your child's confidence and overcome apprehension. However, if you choose, you may come with your child to the treatment room. For the safety and privacy of all patients, other children who are not being treated should remain in the reception room with a supervising adult.
We strive to make each and every visit to our office a fun one!
We welcome you and your child to our practice. We appreciate the opportunity to apply our care, skill and judgement to your child’s total dental needs. Recognizing that our office represents a new experience for you and your child, we offer the following information about our office.
“Love it! Dr. Lazzara is so great with the children I can't imagine any of the kids crying when she is examining them. Very kid friendly office decor so the kids love it from the second they walk in.”
“Wonderful first dental experience with my son! Dr. Lazarra and her staff were amazing!!”
Hands down one of the best Dentist ever...my son was so scared and nervous and now he won't stop talking about his "trip to the Dentist with the flavored toothpaste"
