Children’s Story

I read a story to my young patients early on. I wrote the story while still in dental school. Over the years many parents have asked if their children could get a copy or see the story again. Here is the story of Serena and Kingsley Bodittle. Enjoy.

My goal in treating my young patients is to create an environment where they know they can trust the doctor and that I am on their side and their feelings will be honored; If a child needs to stop for a break, or because they are sensing something, all they need to do is raise their hand and we stop treatment immediately. This gives the child a comforting sense of control.
