Caring for Kids Critical to Park Dental’s Mission

Park Dental Ridgepark Minnetonka Dentist Chris Steele
By Christopher E. Steele, DDS
Park Dental Ridgepark

Being a general dentist, I really enjoy the wide variety of patients I see on a daily basis. However, as my practice has matured, I have developed an appreciation for working with my younger patients. Very few things in dentistry are more rewarding than effectively communicating with someone who is significantly younger and seeing their smile of approval upon completing our work.

At Park Dental, we take our pediatric dentistry very seriously. In an attempt to be conducive to a family lifestyle, our practices treat patients of all ages, including children. Through this approach, we are able to handle most preventive and restorative care issues. In the instance that a problem is too advanced for our dentists, we happily refer our patients on to our partners at The Dental Specialists – Pediatric Dentistry.

In order to provide quality, attentive care for children, we primarily see kids on Saturdays. Reserving Saturdays for pediatric dentistry allows us to focus our attention on a child’s care, while allowing the kids to feel comfortable with a group of their peers. Our younger patients definitely seem to have a positive experience as they enjoy returning to see their dentists and dental team.

In addition to seeing children primarily on Saturdays, at Park Dental we utilize a “tell-show-do” philosophy with our younger patients. Whenever we have to perform a treatment on a child, we make sure to tell and show them what we will be doing before completing the procedure. This calms the patients and helps us ensure that we are giving them the best experience possible.

If you’d like to learn more about pediatric dentistry at Park Dental, please visit our children’s care program page. If you have any specific questions, feel free to contact a nearby practice and set up an appointment. We hope to see you – and your children – soon!

Why do some doctors not have a star rating or comments?

In order to provide our patients with the most accurate and beneficial information, we only post star ratings and comments for a doctor once they have received a minimum of 30 surveys within the previous 12 months.
