The doctors and staff at Pediatric Dentistry of Mansfield have a simple mission. “Our goal is to teach children how to become confident, fearless dental patients and to help parents raise cavity-free kids,” said Dr. Deborah Sullivan. “I truly believe that God has gifted me to calm, comfort, and help other people—especially the littlest ones.”
Dr. Danny Wright agrees, “We view it as a privilege to be a part of our young patients’ lives and take pride in educating them in establishing healthy oral habits. Our aim is to provide a fun, non-threatening environment that allows children to actually enjoy coming to the dentist.”
In fact, Drs. Sullivan and Wright hear from astonished parents all the time whose children ask when they can return to the dentist. That may be because of their philosophy of “treating the child, not the tooth”. Or it may be because both doctors look upon dentistry not merely as a job but as a ministry. “God calls us to serve others and to try to bring joy to other people,” Dr. Wright said. “Our obvious goal is to take care of our patients’ dental needs. But more importantly, we want to do it in a way that’s pleasant and easy for the child to tolerate.”
Drs. Wright and Sullivan discuss diet, hygiene, and helpful hints to help parents keep their children cavity-free. When dental treatment is necessary, they provide the highest quality restorations and offer all levels of anxiety-reducing sedation. And to keep smiles beautiful and authentic looking, they offer aesthetic white fillings and white crowns.
Twice a year Pediatric Dentistry of Mansfield takes the entire staff to volunteer their dental services at Mission Arlington. Doctors, hygienists, assistants and office personnel spend the day helping children smile who otherwise might never see a dentist. They continue that helping spirit throughout the year by working with the Save-A-Smile Foundation, Give Kids A Smile and dental mission trips to countries around the world.
They are now accepting new patients.
Drs. Sullivan and Wright are board-certified pediatric dentists and diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
