Beach Themes, Video Games and Bubble Walls Put Kids at Ease

July 16, 2011 – McKinney, Texas – Although cavities fear local pediatric dentist Dr. Jon Schaack, his young patients don’t – and his creative approach to making children feel comfortable with what many consider to be a scary situation has parents singing his praises. Schaack has managed to create a dentist’s office that children genuinely look forward to visiting. His practice, McKinney Pediatric Dentistry, combines innovative technology with fun interior design and a caring staff that treat patients like they were their own, and it’s a huge hit with parents.

“Our number one goal is to ensure our patients receive the best oral care,” Dr. Schaack, says. “But we also want to make sure that children have a fun and educational experience when they come to see the dentist.”

There”s no shortage of fun at McKinney Pediatric Dentistry. Thanks to the beach-themed office, toys, a video game areas and even a “bubble wall,” kids feel right away that they”re in a place made for them. This is an important factor when the goal is to reduce anxiety, build a sense of trust and begin to establish a “dental home” for the child. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry defines a dental home as a place where “your child”s oral health care is delivered in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated and family-centered way by a licensed dentist.”

Local moms are thrilled with both the quality of dental care and the child-centric approach. Erika Malcom says, “Thank you for taking such great care of my boy. It was his first visit to the dentist and I could not imagine it going any smoother. You all truly made it such a positive experience.” Shayna Mills says, “My two-year-old keeps talking about her doctor! She keeps asking if she can go back this weekend! Such a great feeling knowing we”ve found a dentist who cares about his patients and a staff who is excited to greet them!”

Pediatric Dentistry is a field that requires a special kind of dentist, one who understands how to promote feelings of safety and comfort. Dr. Schaack goes above and beyond the normal requirements of his field to deliver a service that makes going to the dentist fun, exciting, and comfortable, for both kids and parents. Dr. Schaack received a four-year academic and leadership scholarship to Baylor College of Dentistry, where he graduated in the top five of his class and received several prestigious awards. He received specialized pediatric dental training and worked with special needs children, again at Baylor, after completing dental school.
