Finding Friendly Service at A Safari Dental

When most people think of dentists, their minds are quickly filled with large dental chairs, local anesthetic, and exaggerated dental equipment. While it may be true that oral dental procedures can be intimidating, dentists themselves often receive a bad reputation. Dental professionals provide a much needed service to improve the health and quality of living for their patients. The experts at A Safari Dental in New Port Richey, Fl, take an even greater step in putting the fear of dentists to shame – providing community service to schools and families in the surrounding area.

The staff of A Safari Dental managed to convince an entire generation that dentists are nothing to fear by participating in the Great American Teach-In at Fox Hollow Elementary. They taught students the importance of proper nutrition and showed the correct techniques for brushing and flossing teeth, thus encouraging young minds to be healthy through smiles and laughter. The youngsters were so appreciative that Dr. Frank and his colleagues received dozens of handmade thank you cards from students, each expressing their new found fondness for oral health.


Dr. Frank ensures that children who visit his office always feel welcome and comfortable. Televisions playing child favorites are in each waiting area, and several games are available to help nervous kids focus on something positive. The staff is trained to treat each young patient with the respect and care they deserve, which involves conversing with them directly and politely, taking the opportunity to learn more about them, and discussing topics that make the child happy. All of the clinic's facilities also have child-sized versions, a small detail that goes a long way in helping scared youths feel at home with their dentist.

Dr. Frank and his associates are ready to provide a warm, welcoming, and memorable dental experience for your child! Check our contact page to see if you live within our serviceable areas, or call us today to set up an appointment.
