I am one of the dental hygienists. There’s two of us here. I see patients for their preventative recalls. I clean their teeth, take x-rays, oral hygiene education. They need any work done, we then turn them over to Dr. Newingham. We talk them through what we are going to do. We do a good job of explaining what’s going on. I think we have some good distractions. The TV is in the operatories help them just to distract them from what’s going on. We have nitrous oxide they can have if they need to relax a little bit, but I think we just from the minute they walk in the door, the front desk just makes them feel comfortable. I think it is just a comfortable atmosphere and that helps take away some of the anxiety they have.
We do see a lot of kids yeah, but it is a very family oriented practice. We do a lot to help make the kids feel comfortable. They come in starting at about 3 years old and some of them grow up in the practice. We do see children. We love to see kids and they seem to have a good experience here. We like to have them come in with their mom or dad prior to having their first visit just to get to know the practice, and we show them around and maybe watch their sibling or parent get their teeth cleaned so they know a little bit of what to expect. Then when they come in for their first visit, we go slow. We talk to them. We show them everything we have, what we are going to do, take the time to explain it. Usually kids do really good. We have toy treasure chest at the end and kid shows they can watch on TV. Kids seem to be happy and are excited to come back, which is what our goal is.

Ensuring Your Young Ones Have The Best Dental Visits
At Newingham Dental Center, we recommend bringing your children with you during dental cleanings and exams.
Bringing the youngest members of your family to the dentist will help them feel comfortable at the dentist’s office and will encourage them to seek the care they need for the rest of their lives.
We do everything we can to make sure that your children are happy and comfortable every time they come to our office. We even have an area of the waiting room that’s just for kids, so while you enjoy a complimentary beverage of your choice, your child can relax, make a couple of new friends, and:
- Play video games or watch movies
- Read books or lend some art to our coloring books
- Search through our big “treasure chest” full of toys
