My daughter was very fearful about having her cavity filled, however Dr. Abdoll was great with her. She didn't cry at all and she told me after the procedure that it wasn't as bad as she thought. He was calm, reassuring and very gentle. He explained exactly what he was going to do before he did it, but in a kid friendly way that was not scary to her. The worst part for her was waiting for the numbness in her mouth to wear off. Hopefully she doesn't have anymore cavities, but if so, I feel comfortable knowing she won't be afraid.
