Behavior Guidance

We are experts in behavior guidance! Providing effective behavior guidance is one of the principles in the specialty of Pediatric Dentistry. Our behavior guidance goals are to establish communication, alleviate anxiety, deliver superior dental care, build a trusting relationship, and promote a positive attitude toward dental health and oral health care. Dr. Yea, and each member of our team, are uniquely qualified to provide appropriate guidance based on your child’s individualized needs. Examples of behavior guidance we use are: positive reinforcement, tell-show-do, distraction and redirection, parental presence or absence, nitrous oxide/oxygen inhalation or “happy air.” If necessary, Dr. Yea can provide conscious sedation or general anesthesia for children with complicated treatment needs.
