What type of payments do you take?

Do you allow parents back for treatment?

Parents are welcome to come back with their child during all new patient visits and subsequent cleaning visits. For treatment visits (fillings, extractions, etc), Dr. Favalli recommends parents and other caregivers remain in the reception area. If it is important to you, however, we will let one adult accompany your child into the treatment room.

Experience has shown that children tend to do better when their attention can be focused in one direction. Part of the goal is to give children the confidence that they can "do it on their own."

There's nothing better than seeing a proud child leaving after treatment, eager to tell mom or dad how great they did! In preparation for your child's visit, we ask that you avoid words like "drill", "needle", or anything similar that may scare a child. Dr. Favalli and his team will present things in a more child-friendly manner.
