Scottsdale Pediatric Dentist - Noel W. Korf, DDS
The team at Noel W. Korf, DDS are dedicated to simplifying oral health for children through patient education. Our gentle, communicative approach nurtures a trusted long-term relationship for our young patients and their parents. Dr. Noel Korf has been a pediatric dental specialist in Scottsdale for over 38 years. He provides a fair and humanistic approach to pediatric dentistry. Dr. Korf firmly believes that his educational, non-sedation approach to pediatric dentistry helps children cope with difficult decisions and increases their desire to care for their own teeth.
Our North Scottsdale Pediatric Dentist Prioritizes Dental Education and Comfort
Dr. Korf and staff facilitate a “Tell-Show-Do” approach to every visit. Patients as young as 3 or 4 will learn through the “Tell-Show-Do” educational model – after all, patients of all ages benefit from a great education. Scottsdale’s youngsters build great dental habits as they learn about great oral health.
Tell - Dr. Korf emphasizes communication at the start of any procedure or exam. Children are told what the hygienist or dentist will do and why.
Show - Many questions or uncertainties are addressed within this next phase. Dr. Korf wants his young patients to know what his dental tools look like and how they are used. They demonstrate how the tools work to minimize fear or uncertainties.
Do – Once the patient understands what will come next, Dr. Korf or a hygienist will move forward with the procedure.
Dental assistants and hygienists review and affirm everything that Dr. Korf teaches his young patients. The assistants help soothe the patient and will even hold the child’s hand to comfort them throughout the procedure. Each patient is treated individually and the staff make an effort to support a lifetime of great oral health.
Dr. Korf’s preventive dental education is the cornerstone to building trusting relationships between himself and his young patients. When children learn how to properly take care of their teeth and gums, problems are limited. Routine check-ups help maintain control over plaque and tartar issues as well as help detect decay at an early stage. Dr. Korf believes that non-sedation practices equip children for a lifetime of better oral health. Patients are awake and alert during procedures to better understand the process and reinforce the need for a daily hygiene routine. Dr. Korf understands that some patients will require sedation methods because of the severity of the case, so he determines the best approach individually, emphasizing non-sedation as his primary preferred approach.
Our North Scottsdale children’s pediatric dental services include:
- Non-sedation method of treatment for mild to moderate procedures
- Restorative treatments to enhance function and aesthetics
- Preventive cleanings for early detection and prevention support
