Sitting in the dentist chair can be fun if you can watch cartoons!

Dr. Georgia Jones of Crestline Village Dentistry knows about kids and dentists ~ a young mother, she has small children of her own!  So, it was a challenge to her to build her new practice around family appeal, and she wanted to create a non-threatening atmosphere for that very first visit!  Headphones and lots of favorite movies has helped!  Cartoons for the kids (and "Friends" for the adults) keeps the laughter going while the equipment is buzzing.

However, don't let the upbeat atmosphere make you think that this is not a serious and competent practice!  The University of Alabama graduate has received lots of local accolades for her work!
