Time to go see Dr. Marr

Our 6 month check-up at the dentist.

I absolutely love my kiddos dentist. Having six children, ages 19 and under, we have had several pediatric dentists. By far, our current dentist is my favorite!! I personally have had some traumatic experiences at the dentist and do not want the same for my children. Several of my children have significant health issues that require some extra TLC and precautions when it comes to dental care. 

Our previous pediatric dentist would not allow parents to go back with their children. This never sat well with me. My kiddos current dentist allows you to go back with your child. She not only takes adequate time with my kiddos but takes that extra time to discuss concerns. 

My kiddos are glued to the ceiling watching their chosen movie with headphones and are pretty much oblivious to what is going on in their mouths. One of my kiddos has some sensory issues and Dr. Marr has always been very understanding and compassionate. This is HUGE for no only my daughter but for me too. 

Dr. Karina Marr is amazing!!
