Dr. Lora and our staff use the following words when explaining procedures and introducing dental instruments to your child. We feel that these words help familiarize children with our procedures on a level that they can understand.
When talking to your child, please refer to this list. It is always good to keep a positive attitude when discussing dental treatment with your child so they will develop an independent and positive attitude toward dental care throughout their lives.
