Can I go in with my child when she is being seen?

We encourage a number of behaviours in our child patients that have been shown to improve cooperation such as the concept of “observational learning” where kids see other children receiving similar treatment and therefore may engage those patients and are reassured that treatment isn’t too challenging. Moreover, we want the children to take the responsibility for listening to instructions and “owning” their treatment as we observe improved cooperation in these circumstances. Naturally we will engage you fully and always talk to you at the appointment passing on instructions and keep you updated with their progress. It is also always interesting to get the child’s perception of their progress independent of their parent’s perception.
