Behavior Guidance Counseling

Sitting in the dental chair isn’t always easy. Our behavior counseling empowers your child to face challenges, overcome obstacles, and gain confidence as they learn how to take charge of their oral health.

Desensitization Appointments

First visits are overwhelming sometimes — there are so many new faces, sounds, and expectations! To help your child adjust, we offer desensitization appointments. Through a series of visits, we’ll give your child a tour of our office, introduce our friendly team, and teach them about dental tools. This helps your kiddo get acclimated with our space so they can feel safe, secure, and cared for.

An Environment You’ll Both Appreciate

With our sunny, modern office space, we’ve designed an atmosphere that keeps both you and your child at ease from the moment you walk through our doors.

Nutritional Counseling

A wholesome diet will keep your child’s teeth and body healthy, all while reducing the risk of cavities and other oral health issues. Dr. Zala can recommend dietary modifications to set your child’s smile and whole-body health up for success.
