Join Us For our Next Bi-Annual Tooth-N-Pooch Event
Pupdate: Due to COVID-19, we are working with our dogs and volunteers to reschedule this event.
Pediatric Dentistry of Winter Park held our 1st Annual Tooth-N-Pooch Day on September 18th. This was a fun-filled day for our patients, including those at their first dental appointment and others that had previous nerves and anxiety about the dentist. Tooth-N-Pooch Day was a wonderful event to allow patients the comfort of a service dog at their side throughout their dental appointment. Our patients absolutely loved having their furry friends there for support! We had a total of four hypoallergenic dogs in the office that took different shifts, so our patients did not feel overwhelmed. Each dog had a wonderful trainer by their side to help guide the service dog for the best all-around patient experience.
Tooth-N-Pooch was an idea born when Dr. Miller and her assistants noticed some of their pediatric patients were more fearful of the dentist than others or had a sensitivity to the sounds and vibrations of the cleaning hand-pieces and bright overhead lights. Our staff brainstormed better ways to help our patients and “Tooth-N-Pooch Day” became the solution. September’s event was so successful that we will be offering Tooth-N-Pooch Day again in 2020. This is a great opportunity to bring your child in, whether a first-time visit or routine cleaning appointment and have a little extra comfort and support with our trained service dogs. We will be offering cleanings, exams, and X-rays with the help of our fur-tastic friends. Slots are filling up quickly so be sure to book early.
