As the proud father of four, Dr. Egger understands the importance of being a gentle and approachable family dentist. This understanding is translated into extra care and attention for every young patient.
Dr. Egger’s team creates a fun atmosphere for every visit. Your child’s first visit begins with a “ride” in the dental chair. It continues with the opportunity for children to see and count their teeth, and includes a face-to-face meeting with Mr. Thirsty, a.k.a. Dr. Egger’s suction tool. Children can even put on gloves just as Dr. Egger does before examining their mouths and can take a mask like his home for later play.
While these steps are not required for children’s dental exams in other practices, Dr. Egger and his dental team believe it’s well worth every minute they invest. They know this extra time and attention not only helps put your son or daughter at ease, but also educates and motivates children to care for their own teeth and gums and makes dental visits to our family dentist something to look forward to rather than something to fear.
Talk to a member of our dental team about how we can help you instill confidence and good oral health habits in your family. When you’re ready, please feel free to schedule your child’s next appointment. We are proud to provide high-quality family dentistry to residents of Federal Way, Tacoma, Kent, Auburn, Fife, and the surrounding cities in Washington.
