Trusted West Los Angeles Children’s Dentist
For children, first visits to get a haircut and to the dentist fall into similar categories. To a child, it seems unfathomable that someone taking a sharp pair of scissors to their hair won’t hurt badly. As for the dentist’s office, being strapped into a strange-looking chair, with sharp instruments and looming adults surrounding you, the visit may as well be an alien abduction.

Our dentists have helped thousands of children who, just like your child, was once scared of the dentist. Now our young patients actually look forward to their visits to the dentist’s office.
What to look for in a Children’s Dentist
Any good children’s dentist will share a few positive traits. First, a Culver City children’s dentist or West Los Angeles children’s dentist a dentist with extensive experience like Dr. Eftekhari ( Dr. “E.” ) who has treated over 25,000 happy children and parents over the past 18 years.
At United Dental Care, every staff member and dentist is trained to work with kids. We believe every kid deserves excellent dental care, and should get it in a comfortable, calming environment with a gentle and friendly Culver City children’s dentist.
Second, your Culver City children’s dentist or West Los Angeles children’s dentist should take the time to talk with your children, teaching them about proper oral hygiene in a way they can understand. A dentist, who doesn’t take the time to educate the children directly, preferring instead just to talk to Mom or Dad, will not make much impression on the child. It’s important that a children’s dentist establishes a connection directly with the child, not just with his or her parents.
Third, although it may not seem as important as the first two points, superior children’s dentists put their patients at ease before they even make it into the exam room. In the waiting room of your Culver City children’s dentist or West Los Angeles children’s dentist, are there toys available? Children’s books? If there’s a television set, what’s it playing – children’s programming, or MSNBC? A dentist whose primary patient base is children should have a waiting room that reflects this.
