A Nashville Pediatric Dentist for More Than 40 Years
Adams Pediatric Dentistry has been serving as a Nashville pediatric dentist office for over 40 years, since Dr. Adams’ father started the practice in 1977. Experience of the current staff (Meet Our Team) ranges from 2 years to 25 years. We have a good balance when it comes to length of experience and experience with newer technology.
Standard Treatment Plan and Technology
There is not a one-size-fits-all solution. We tend to be conservative and flexible with how parents want to approach a situation. We explain our plan and then adjust it to fit what parents are comfortable with.
Additionally, we use technology and techniques that make treatment easier and less frightening for the child. For a child’s comfort, we use a relaxed, “open bay” hygiene setup so no patient is alone in a room. Our digital x-ray machine is a good example of technology that is more comfortable for a child. It does not require x-ray film to be placed in the child’s mouth; therefore, there is no gag reflex or discomfort. It’s a quick and easy process that yields a high-quality diagnosis.
Parent and Dentist Interaction
Not every Nashville pediatric dentist feels the need to speak with a parent at every visit. But at Adams Pediatric Dentistry, we not only talk with the parent every time, we are very good at listening to your concerns and questions and addressing them.
