Although one of Dn Amy Luedemann- Lazar’s “worst experiences as a kid” was a trip to the dentist, she combined it with her love for children and turned it into something wonderful. Following her passion, she became a pediatric dentist and set out to make dentistry a positive experience for her pint-sized patients.
“We’re committed to providing accessible, painless, transformative dental experiences for children,” said Dr Luedemann- Lazar, whose patients call her Dr Amy. “This helps set the stage for good dental experiences in the future, and most likely, for the rest of their lives.”
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY FOR MORE COMFORT, LESS ANXIETY
Dr Luedemann-Lazar strives to provide high-quality dentistry in an environment where kids feel comfortable, safe, and right at home. Advanced technology, such as lasers, plays a big role. For example, she performs nearly all procedures without shots and gag-free cavity detection without radiation and with greater accuracy than traditional or digital X-rays. Dr Luedemann-Lazar also uses lasers to quickly and painlessly remove the frenum (a piece of tissue in the mouth connecting the lip to the gum) for infants who have difficulty latching. “My youngest frenectomy patient was four days old. It’s safe, painless, and effective,” Dr Luedemann-Lazar said.
OPENING THE DOOR TO DENTAL CARE FOR ALL KIDS
In addition to an upbeat, friendly staff and kid-oriented office design, Dr. Luedemann-Lazar uses hands-on learning tools to create a comfortable and fun dental visit for children.
“We spend lots of time at the beginning of each appointment getting acquainted with our patients and making a connection with them,” Dr Luedemann-Lazar said. “Our hands on learning activities help kids understand what dentists do and what’s going to happen while they’re visiting us. The D-terminated program also helps children feel more at ease in a dental setting, including autistic and special needs patients. We start with small steps, such as sitting on the chair, making eye contact, and positioning in the chair Once the patient is comfortable, we do things in increments, counting to 10. Most procedures can be done by adding together increments of 10 seconds.”
PRAISE FOR KIDSTOWN DENTAL
“I can’t begin to express how amazing Dr Luedemann and her staff are. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted by the most friendly staff. I have two young boys who have in the past always been extremely nervous and actually cried during their dental visits…not here! They do so much teaching, really related with my children on their level and made the experience extremely pleasant and fun! Dr Luedemann is extremely knowledgeable, has the most gentle and patient nature, has a true love for working with children, and the sweetest and most fun personality! Her passion and love for dentistry is incredible. I caught myself wishing she was my dentist as well! My boys even received little awards for being good patients.” – H.M.
