Patient Demographics: Babies, Children

"I believe that the key in treating patients is education, ethics and fun. Through games and imagination, children can be taught proper oral health and be brought to understand that every treatment is important to protect their teeth. With tales and songs, children gain serenity and confidence to enjoy going to the dentist without fear. That way, we make this process more friendly and manageable to both children and parents, and at the same time we help children prevent future problems."

General Info

About me

When I was a child, going to a dentist really scared me and made me anxious. It was a real challenge to make me stay still. When I turned 6, I had a very nice experience with a doctor who helped me control my fears and I learned that everything would be ok as long as I was calm. In that moment I realized that I wanted to become a Pediatric Dentist to help other children who, just like me, were scared of going to the dentist with the fear of not knowing what was going to happen. Fortunately, I love to work with children, I am very patient and can communicate very clearly with kids. When my little patients come to my office, I show them how everything works in the office, what each instrument and material is for and we let them use a small mirror so that they can see what we are doing in their mouths. These techniques make the patients feel like they have the situation under control. As a result, they lose fear and become interested in their dental hygiene and preventing illnesses. In my days as teacher, I promised myself that all my students would learn the different types of disabilities, their implications and the attention protocol necessary to treat handicapped patients as handicapped patients represent a beautiful challenge. It has been very gratifying to see that my students (now colleagues) learned to treat these patients in a very humane, fearless way and without using general anesthesia. I believe that anything is possible when you love what you do.

"La experiencia con la Dra. Salazar excedió mis espectativas, la doctora en todo momento se dirigió a mi hijo con cariño y mucho respeto. Ella le dió la información a el, explicando cada detalle y asegurandose que el entendía y de esa manera ganandose su confianza. Agradezco mucho su dedicación y paciencia, gracias a esa visita mi hijo quiere volver a ver a la "doctora de dientes" como el la llama."
