Children of all ages can develop a fear of going to the dentist. It could be from a cartoon they saw on television or something they overheard from an adult or sibling.

That’s why it’s critical that you help them overcome their fear of the dentist. That’s why the caring and professional staff at NOVA Dental Anesthesia provide sedation dentistry for pediatric patients in Northern VA.

Does Your Child Suffer from Dental Anxiety?

If it’s time for your child to start undergoing their semi-annual dental exams and professional dental cleanings at your children’s dentistry in Burke, Northern Virginia, but you’ve been putting them off because your child has demonstrated dental anxiety, it may be time to consider sedation dentistry as an option.
