Dentist puts mom and kids at ease
Description of experience: "Dr. Gillham performed the first dental exam for my 5-year-old son, Dawson, and 2-year-old daughter, Tessa."
Member comments: "When we walked in, it was so homey and comfortable. We were taken to the exam area and the dental assistants let the kids pick out a movie to watch. They also showed them how the equipment and tools worked.
"When Dr. Gillham came in, he blew up gloves for the kids like balloons and made them laugh.
"Dr. Gillham found three cavities in Dawson's teeth, showed me the X-rays and even made a copy for me to put in his scrapbook. After the exam was done, they gave the kids stickers and a toy from a treasure chest, and they gave them a card for a free ice cream cone after they had brushed every day for a week.
"When we went back for the fillings, Dawson was completely at ease. He was excited to see the dentist, and Tessa was sad she didn't get to go!"
