Dr. Jekel caters to families, which includes treating children three years and up. We recommend that children come to dental appointments with mom or dad before his or her first visit. The little one will see that the dental visit is easy and this creates a comfortable environment before his or her first appointment. In some cases a child has a significant fear or resistance to being treated and Dr. Jekel may refer him or her to a pedodontist who specializes in children and can provide appropriate anxiety reducing medications. For more information on our children’s dentistry services, we invite you to contact the office of Dr. Jekel in Dallas today.
