Pediatric Dental Care with Heart in Burke, VA
Your child’s first dental experiences can affect his or her feelings about dentistry for the rest of their life. It’s essential for children to have only positive, fun visits, in a safe space where they immediately feel welcome and at home.
Dr. Gary Kramer and Dr. Sara Bunin have created that safe environment: a pediatric dental office in Burke, VA, where children are cared for with respect, compassion, and love. They go above and beyond to make sure that each patient experience is special, since each child has unique needs.
Dr. Kramer and Dr. Bunin are both board-certified pediatric dentists and have completed hospital-based residency programs that have gifted them the expertise to work with children, adolescents, and children with special needs.
Along with our amazing team, Drs. Kramer and Bunin are committed to ensuring that children feel calm, excited, and eager to come back again and again. Our goal is to have all children achieve optimal oral health and the knowledge and passion to keep their smiles healthy and beautiful for life!
Everyone in our office is extremely family friendly with an emphasis on making lifelong relationships with families. Dr. Kramer is now seeing children of patients he saw growing up, which is a testament to the incredibly care they received when they were younger that they look no further but to bring their child for the same great experience. Dr. Bunin is extremely involved and known as the Tooth Fairy at many local preschools because she dedicates her time talking to them for Children's Dental Health Month. As a mom of three young children, her patience and understanding comes naturally.
We have a wonderful two-story playhouse that kids love to explore, whether they’re playing in the kitchen or curling up with a beloved book. We also offer many arcade and video games along with tons of age-appropriate movies: many times, patients don’t want to go home!
We welcome and encourage parents to be with their child throughout the visit. It’s essential for everyone to understand what’s happening and that we’re able to form a team between the child, parent, doctors, and our staff. Together, we help children learn how to care for their smile, teach them about nutrition, and encourage them to develop healthy habits that last a lifetime!
Our Commitment to Exceptional Care
We believe every child deserves leading-edge dental care, through the use of advanced techniques and technology, with treatment tailored to the child’s unique physical and developmental needs. We’re highly responsive to a child’s comfort and always listen to, respond, and encourage questions.
Starting with their first visit, you and your child will sit and talk with the doctor. We’ll engage with your son or daughter, ask about their life and interests, and begin to forge a bond of trust. By the time we’re ready to move into the treatment room, most patients are completely relaxed and excited to see what happens next!
At each visit, we’ll clearly explain what will happen, using “Tell-Show-Do”: by talking with the child, showing him or her the tools we use, and then proceeding gradually, we help everyone relax and feel comfortable.
