To some degree, each and every child has special needs in order for them to do well in a new or unique environment. At Bloomington Pediatric Dentistry, we want to know everything about your child that makes them who they are so we may do our job to the best of our ability, and help them succeed at their dental appointments. We have many unique sights, smells, tastes, and sounds in the Floss and Brush Castle. Not all children respond to those stimuli in the same way; we will do our best to introduce them in a way that fits your child’s personality and comfort level.
When Dr. Taylor was designing the original Bloomington Pediatric Dentistry space back in 2001, his goal was to have a kid friendly activity that would help the children get excited to come to the dentist and possibly ease the anxiety that most of them portray. The ‘’I Spy” concept was such a huge success that Dr. Taylor wanted that “magic” carried throughout the new space.
Dr. Taylor is very proud of the newly completed office and all it has to offer to the children and families of southern Indiana. Our doctors strive to always put the children first which is why they have made our new office into a magical remake of Jack and the Beanstalk, with the help of local painters Ruth, Cindy, and Cheryl Hester of Lettuce Paint. Our story begins as soon as you walk into our office – The “Floss and Brush Castle.” Both children and parents alike enjoy finding hidden items that are intricately painted on the walls relating to the story of Jack and the Beanstalk along with some healthy foods and other castle related items. These are all located in the “giant’s courtyard,” otherwise known as our waiting room! Throughout our castle, the storybook of beautiful art unravels in every room allowing the children to lose themselves in imagination.
