The 5 Best Reasons to Try A Safari Dental

Why consider taking your child to A Safari Dental for his or her dental care? There are an abundance of reasons!

1.)    Care from a Trained Pediatric Dentist

A Safari Dental's Dr. Frank Pettinato III is a specialist in pediatric dentistry, which means he maintains the additional training and certification needed to more effectively  treat children's oral health issues. Remember, not all dentists have this unique pediatric certification. Dr. Frank knows just what to look for when working with young patients, and is also able to connect with younger patients in a friendly, accessible manner to help kids feel right at ease during first trips to the dentist.


2.)    A Range of Services

A Safari Dental offers a wide range of dental services for its young patients. These services include routine dental checkups, fluoride treatments, x-rays, restorative procedures like crowns and amalgam fillers, and the creation of custom mouth guards. We also offer orthodontic services!  Should your child be in need of braces, he or she can receive full orthodontic corrective care right here at the A Safari Dental office without needing to consult with an outside practice, as is often the case at most other dental practices. Plus, at A Safari Dental, your child will be eligible for receiving a FREE braces consultation!


3.)    A Welcoming Environment

How many other dental practices will go the extra mile to create a welcoming office environment conducive to young children? At A Safari Dental, our office is adorned with fun, engaging murals of tropical scenes and features a variety of games and entertainment in our waiting room. Our patient rooms also feature TV sets that children can watch for added comfort, and parents are always welcome to sit in a patient room during an appointment to stay with their child. The A Safari Dental staff also always goes above and beyond to welcome each of our young patients with kindness and enthusiasm, making kids feel right at home.


4.)    Wide Area of Service

A Safari Dental's prime location in New Port Richey, Florida, makes dental care easily accessible to those searching for a Port Richey dentist, a Trinity kid's dentist, an East Lake Florida dentist, a Tarpon Springs dentist, or a Spring Lake child's dentist. Given that A Safari Dental is just a short drive away, if you live in one of these neighboring towns, consider visiting A Safari Dental rather than opting for another general dental practice.


5.)    Access to Educational Information

At A Safari Dental, we take care to provide our patients and parents with valuable information about pediatric oral health care. Our regularly updated blog features a variety of tips concerning dental care, while our collection of videos provides additional insight into children's dental care tips. Dr. Frank and the A Safari dental staff are also committed to speaking with young patients and their parents about best practices for dental care during appointments.
