How we differ?
We know you have a lot of choices when it comes to choosing a dental home for your child. Here's a few unique traits that we offer that distinguish our practice from the rest:
Board Certification in a Dental specialty is a voluntary process. While dental licensure sets the minimum competency requirements to diagnose and treat patients, it is not specialty specific. Board certification demonstrates a dentist's exceptional expertise in a particular specialty of dentistry. Board certification also demonstrates a dentist's desire and commitment to obtain higher standards and provide better care.
Dr. Naik is a proud diplomat of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
Trained in treating special need kids
Dr. Naik received post-graduate training in Rady Children's Hospital, San Diego, CA which is dedicated exclusively to pediatric healthcare and the region’s only designated pediatric trauma center. Because of the extensive training received here, Dr.Naik is well adept in all areas of children’s dentistry including treating medically, physically and developmentally compromised children and victims of trauma.
Parent in the treatment area
A parent will be allowed in the treatment area while the child is being treated if they so choose. In fact, parents are encouraged to join in the experience. A parent’s input is highly valuable when we plan treatment for your child. We kindly ask that you do not join the discussion while the doctor is speaking to your child. If you talk while the doctor is talking, your child will listen to no one. When too many people are talking to a child, he/she may feel more anxious. Asking a child if he or she is "OK" during treatment may make it seem like there is something that shouldn’t be OK and also lead to anxiety.
Latest Technology Our newly designed practice features digital x-rays, paperless charting, and utilizes the latest technologies to ensure patient comfort and quality care. Digital x-rays allow us to offer our patients a standard of care treatment with the lowest possible radiation exposure. ISODRY SYSTEM Happy patients spend less time in the dental chair with more comfort. That's why we use the revolutionary Isodry system! Isodry's soft, flexible mouthpiece lets you rest your jaw and shields your tongue and cheek during treatment and gives us a clearer view of our work. Second, it uses advanced self-aspirating technology that makes cotton rolls, suction, and rinse a thing of the past!
We understand that many children feel uneasy about dental visits and we always treat our patients with extra sensitivity and compassion. Our friendly and gentle manner will help your child feel at ease with us, and having positive dental experiences during childhood can encourage a lifetime of good oral habits. To make sure your child is comfortable during treatment, we can offer the following adjunctive dental services: Nitrous Oxide Sedation (laughing gas), Oral Sedation (medications are given the morning of the appointment) or Hospital Dentistry.
