First off, full disclosure I am a dentist at Comfort Dental in Gladstone. My little girl got cavities. (yes as a dentist I was embarrassed because i brush her teeth every night and morning.) But I understand that despite that, kids can get cavities. I would have done her work myself but when its your kid its very hard to do their dental work. When I took my little girl to Dr. Pollina he was amazing! All i wanted was for her to have a good experience and to get better. His gentle nature and care for children showed in how my daughter reacted.
She loves her “bubble nose” (that means the bubble gum flavored mask for the nitrous gas.)my daughter still wears it for fun and asks if she can go back to the dentist. She is so proud that her dad is a dentist who helps people when there teeth hurt. When i get home she says “Dad, did you fix peoples teeth?” and I say yes I did. Then she gives me a hug. If you have a child that needs dental work go to Dentistry for children. If you are an adult come see me ;).
But seriously I have the upmost respect for Dr. Pollina and his staff. Thank you for showing people that dentist’s care and do great work especially with kids.
