Join Us For our Next Bi-Annual Tooth-N-Pooch Event
Pupdate: Our Next Tooth- N- Pooch Event Will be in the spring of 2021! Thanks for a GREAT 2020 event! We will be taking all of the necessary precautions for COVID 19. We are excited to see you!
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 on October 21st 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.
