A trip to the oral and maxillofacial surgeon can be overwhelming, especially for the young patient. We believe that spending the time to explain the need for treatment, alternatives, and what to expect can ease the process. In most cases Dr. Berman will require a consultation visit prior to the procedure. During this visit he will discuss the process with your child and allow time for them to ask questions and be involved in the decision making process. Most children do quite well when they are allowed a voice.
