Dr. Atherton’s goal is to help children cooperate with the dental treatment and to come out feeling relaxed and confident. Some children bring their parent’s fears or, their own to the dental chair. Dr. Atherton uses a variety of behavior techniques, including positive coaching, distraction, and frequent “rests” to name a few. But by far the most preferred technique is enthusiastic praise. Every child does something right during a dental visit, and Dr. Atherton gives plenty of complements for a job well done!
