Practice Terminology
Dear Parents,

In order to improve the chances of your child having a positive experience in our office, we are selective in our use of words. We try to avoid words that scare the child due to previous experiences. Please support us by NOT USING negative words that are often used for dental care. These include:

DO NOT USE................................................... OUR EQUIVALENT
Needle or shot .................................................Sleepy Juice
Drill .....................................................................Mr. Whistler
Drill on Teeth ....................................................Clean a tooth
Pull or yank tooth ..............................................Wiggle a tooth
Examination ......................................................Count Teeth
Explorer ..............................................................Tooth Counter
Rubber Dam.......................................................Raincoat
Gas.......................................................................Happy Air
Suction.................................................................Mr. Thirsty
Laser Treatment.................................................Miss Poppy/ Water Popcorn machine

This will also help you understand your child's description of the filling experience. Our intention is not to "fool" the child but to create an experience that is positive. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us build a good attitude for your child.

Thank you,
Loma Linda Children's Dental Group
