Dr Laura Fox - Family Dentistry

For Kids
cavity free

Especially rewarding to Dr. Fox, is working with children of all ages to create a positive experience for a lifetime of good oral health. How we perceive the dentist as an adult is largely determined by our experiences as a child. Dr. Fox provides gentle care to her patients and takes the time to encourage even the most hesitant child to become comfortable in the dental chair.

Some children benefit from the use of nitrous oxide (or “laughing gas”) which can reduce the discomfort and/or anxiety associated with the injection of local anesthesia or “freezing”. In some cases, particularly with small children it can take the place of an injection altogether.

Other children just need the calm reassurance from their dentist that they are “doing a good job” during their dental appointment. Our goal is to help your child build the confidence to overcome any reservations they have about dental procedures and feel good about coming to the dentist.
