Welcome Our Latest Advertiser:Burien Children’s Dentistry!
The B-Town Blog is more than happy to offer a grinning Welcome Aboard! to our latest Advertiser, Burien Childrenâ€™s Dentistry!
If youâ€™re all grown up now, but still act like a baby when it comes to seeing the dentist, sorry, this practice really is just for kids, little ones to teens.
Dr. Shahram Ghafghazi opened his Kids Only practice just a couple of months ago (early September) on the west side of Ambaum, just north of the Happy Garden Chinese Restaurant.
Heâ€™s been practicing general dentistry for a number of years.
Dr. Ghafghazi attended Tufts University to complete his three-year post graduate training in Pediatric Dentistry. He is a certified Diplomate of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD).
When should your child first visit a dentist? Well, the AAPD says your young one should see a dentist by his or her first birthday.
â€œItâ€™s very important to maintain the health of primary teeth,â€ also known as baby teeth, Dr. Ghafghazi says.
â€œThe health, or lack of health, of primary teeth can affect developing permanent teeth.â€
Feel free to park on the Ambaum side of the building; then just walk up the stairs to the officeâ€™s front door on the west side of the building.
When there, youâ€™ll also get know to Christi, the Office Manager, and Myichell, Dental Assistant.
The atmosphere at Burien Childrenâ€™s Dentistry is one designed to make things as relaxed and fun for the youngsters as reasonably possible.
â€œInstead of using the technical term for slow speed cleaning, known as â€˜prophylaxis,â€™â€ Christi says, â€œwe tell the kids â€˜Weâ€™re going to tickle your teeth now!â€™â€
Why did Dr. Ghafghazi, also known as â€œDr. G,â€ choose Burien?
â€œThere really was no Kids Only practice in town,â€ he says.
And why did Dr. G pick pediatric dentistry as the focus of his practice?
â€œBecause I love kids,â€ Dr. G says. â€œAnd besides, Iâ€™m a big kid myself!â€
