Dental Care Takes Care of More Than Teeth
Ten-year-old Simone and 12-year-old Tim, brothers, were recent patients at our Mobile Dental Clinic. Dental work can be stressful for any child and by day four of his care, Simone was growing weary and nervous.
Because the USC Dental team wanted this to be a positive experience for the kids, they called in reinforcements—big brother Tim.
Tim put on the dental scrub and mask, sat by his brother and comforted him to a successful completion of his dental care. By the end of the day big brother Tim wanted to go to dental school.
We are so grateful to the USC Dental School for treating the “whole child” and always taking special care of those who are frightened. The truest definition of TLC!
