What to Expect

For your first visit, we’d love to give you a tour of our clean, new office! You’ll meet Dr. Chris and the team. Dr. Chris is a board-certified pediatric dentist, meaning he has extra training in caring for children’s oral health. We’ll do an exam and, in most cases, we also clean your child’s teeth. We customize our visits to you and your child – our goal is to be as gentle as we can so that your child loves coming to see us. If your child doesn’t want to sit in the dental chair, that’s okay! If your child isn’t ready for a full cleaning, no worries! We meet kids at their comfort level. We will talk to you about your child’s oral health and if there is anything to be concerned about, and we answer all your questions. In the end, your child will get a fun prize and leave with a smile!

Preparing Your Child

An enjoyable and comfortable visit starts long before you walk through our doors. We find that there are times when parents inadvertently share their own negative dental experiences, and can, unfortunately, pass along that dental fear to their children.

Before your visit, it is best not to use any concerning or fearful words. We recommend avoiding words like “pain”, “drill”, or “shot”. Treat the visit as an exciting event, even a party!  Let your children understand that it should be a pleasant visit where the dentist will explain what’s going on and answer any questions.

At Your Child's Pace

At Molar Bear Pediatric Dentistry, we recognize that all children are unique and have individual sensitivities.  If your child is very apprehensive, we may skip certain aspects of an appointment.  We want our patients to leave our office with a smile on their face. Pleasant visits and encouraging words from our team (as well as from caregivers) help a child establish trust and confidence that will last a lifetime.

We serve children in Wasilla, AK, and the surrounding areas including Palmer, Knik-Fairview, and Meadow Lakes.
