Fortunately, at Bear Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Dennis Bear and his team provide a calm, caring, and gentle approach while offering personalized care to your little one’s dental needs. We invite you to spend a few minutes of your time reading more about us and what makes us different than other pediatric dentists in the area.
MEET DR. DENNIS BEAR
As a parent, you want someone who can relate to your situation and the difficulties that can often come with keeping a child’s smile healthy and clean. As a board-certified pediatric dentist, Dr. Dennis Bear is also a father of two. Knowing it takes time, effort, and a lot of patience to encourage children to embrace good oral hygiene, he and his team can work with you to establish optimal dental habits at home as well as tips to avoiding decay and damage.
His knowledge and expertise stem from completing his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at the University of Florida. After graduating, he spent three years in Orlando working as a family dentist before realizing his passion for pediatric dentistry and attending the University of Minnesota. Dr. Bear received extensive training at both the Children’s Masonic Hospital and Gillette Children’s Specialty Hospital working with those who have special needs and various medical conditions.
By combining the skills learned as a family dentist as well as those he continues to refine as a pediatric dentist, Dr. Bear’s clinical knowledge and confident demeanor make it possible for him to treat children in a way that will positively impact their teeth, gums, and overall wellbeing as they transition into adulthood.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
If you want your child’s pediatric dentist to make them smile, laugh, and look forward to future dental visits, you can trust that Dr. Bear can accomplish all of this and much more. While many dentists offer a fun and exciting look to their office, Dr. Bear will actually engage with your child, talking with them about their favorite video games, songs, and animated characters.
This personalized approach helps to minimize any fears or anxiety your child might experience when visiting the dentist’s office. But even if your little one is a bit unsure or apprehensive, he can provide a wide array of sedation dentistry solutions to keep them calm and relaxed.
Apart from the fun and excitement you and your child will experience, how else is Bear Pediatric Dentistry different? Here are a few ways:
- A Commitment to Patient Education: Teaching your child good oral hygiene should start at an early age. This is why Dr. Bear will take the necessary time to carefully go over tips and techniques to help you and your child improve brushing, flossing, and rinsing habits as well as how to avoid the pitfalls that can come with active, sugar-loving kids.
- Trustworthy and Transparent Treatment: No two patients are the same, which is why Dr. Bear will never recommend a “one-size-fits-all” type of treatment plan. Being mindful of your child’s needs, he will suggest conservative solutions that are affordable and guaranteed to improve your child’s smile.
- Providing At-Home Dentistry Services: If you have a child who has special needs and is home-bound, you no longer need to worry about their teeth and gums lacking adequate care. The team at Bear Pediatric Dentistry is pleased to offer home visits should you and your child require special accommodations.
As a pediatric dentist in McKinney, Dr. Bear looks forward to welcoming your family and providing the highest level of quality care. In choosing Bear Pediatric Dentistry, you can expect nothing but the best each time you visit.
