Best Kids Dentist in Akron / Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio: Dr. Adam Pollock Pediatric Dentistry
Take a tour with me of the Dr. Adam Pollock Akron Pediatric Dentistry office. Depending on your child’s age, they may be taken back to the office by a staff member or with you. The first stop is for x-rays where the technician explains to the child that they are going to take ‘pictures’ of their teeth. I like how the staff uses kid-friendly words to explain grown up terms.
Next, it is time to chill out and get cozy.
There are several wall-mounted televisions with children programming to put kids at ease. The entire area is set at kid-friendly heights from the chairs to the sinks. It is a large, open area that is comforting to children. They even offer cool shades to wear during their visit so the examining lights don’t shine into their eyes. The wall that kids face is wall to wall windows with routinely changed painted on art. While we visited, it was decorated with the popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Valentine’s Day theme.
Your child will first be seen by a hygienist who will do an initial exam of your child’s mouth including their teeth, gums, cheeks, hard palate, tongue, tonsils, and throat. I was impressed at how they explain to children what they are going to do before they do it, in kid-friendly terms. They call their dental instruments “germ removers” and the tooth polisher is called a “spinney toothbrush.”
Throughout the visit, the staff talks with your child, to put them at ease. I like how they put responsibility and ownership on the child, asking if they brush daily and how many times, if they floss, etc. They aren’t asking in an accusing way but in a friendly, encouraging way.
Next, Dr. Adam Pollock meets with your child. He starts by reviewing any x-rays taken as well as the initial oral inspection report.
Dr. Adam Pollock has a gifted way with children, putting them at ease at once. He gets to know each patient, providing the trust and care little ones need to be comfortable at the dentist office. He will make a complete oral inspection of your child’s mouth to determine your child’s oral heath and if any further dental measures are necessary.
During the visit, your child may finish with fluoride. They offer three different forms to choose from: fluoride rinse, foam in tray, or painted on foam. My son likes the foam that is painted on with a toothbrush. They offer fun flavors too like Cotton Candy, Wild Strawberry, Growlin’ Grrape, Peppy Mint, and Tropical Blast.Dr. Adam Pollock Akron Pediatric Dentistry thinks of everything to make the trip to the dentist fun and enjoyable for children. The word wall below is a small waiting room for kids to play in between x-rays and the exam and again once they receive their prizes.
At the end of the visit, your child will be taken to the prize area while parents talk one-on-one with Dr. Adam Pollock. They will go home with a new toothbrush, dental floss, and toothpaste.
They also get to choose a couple prizes like rings, super balls, slinkies, rubber lizards, stickers, pencils, bracelets, gem stones, and more. It is amazing how much kids treasure the prizes they get to pick out on their own.
I really appreciate the opportunity to talk one-on-one with Dr. Adam Pollock. He uses the x-ray to show you the state of your child’s teeth, any issues, and teeth that are on the way. It is a relaxed, no-rush time for me to talk with the dentist about any concerns and to ask questions about our current oral healthcare routine, etc. I have never felt rushed during a visit and have always felt confident in this pediatric dentist practice.
If Dr. Adam Pollock recommends a dental restoration procedure for your child, he will explain the reason and expected outcome. For fillings, they use a white composite that isn’t noticeable at all. If your child is frightened or requires a more intense dental procedure, they offer several types of sedation to help relax your child too.
At the end of a dental restoration visit, your child will receive prizes and even a coupon for a free milkshake. This does wonders for a child who has just undergone a dental procedure.
