Los Angeles, CA
My five year old son got some cavities and for the first time I took him to my family dental office. He got terrified and cried so much that the doctor could not do his job. The doctor referred us to Magicland which is an office specialized for children dentistry. I got appointment and as we entered the facilities, it was more like a children entertainment center than a typical dental office. My son kept busy playing with arcades and watching movies. When it was our turn, a nice lady Dr. greeted us and jokingly opened the conversation with my son. I privately explained his previous bad experience with dentistry. The Dr. gave us the option of providing complete anesthesia or minor oral sedation. Naturally, I chose the second option. I was warned that my son might still resist, so for his safety, he needed to be secured in case he moved during the dental procedure. Then the Dr. distracted my son by showing the cartoon characters on the walls and led him to the dental chair where a TV monitor was showing a Disney movie from above. My son was scared, but some how he had managed to keep his calmness. He cried a bit, but he was more agitated than felt the pain when the Dr. quickly finished the procedure. She even put protective sealant on the teeth to prevent against future decay. Many dentists have not volunteered this service when I discussed it with my friends. Since then, I have returned for two semi annual check ups and no extra work has been needed. My regular dentist was also impressed with the quality of their work. My son is not quite comfortable with dentistry, but he is more willing to visit Magicland. I am very satisfied with the friendly environment and excellent dental services Magicland has provided for my son.
