New Pediatric Dentist Open in Philadelphia

Philadelphia Pediatric Dentist Dr. George Lynch Caters to Urban Families With Cutting-Edge New Practice

Dr. George Thomas Lynch wants to make going to the dentist painless — both literally and figuratively — for young, urban Philadelphia families. While “Dr. George,” as he's known to his pediatric patients, is tuned in to the fact that more families are raising their children in the city than in years past, he also realizes that there is a growing city-wide need for quality dental care. In fact, based on a recent statistical analysis, Men’s Health Magazine gave Philly a grade of “F” when it comes to dental health care, ranking it #2 among “American cities with the worst teeth.” Dr. George wants to change this perception and believes that dental health care can only be improved and maintained when patients look to their dentists with trust and understanding. Those relationships begin at an early age with positive experiences through fun, rewarding interactions, he says.

At his practice, Cobblestone Kids, located at 1352 South Street, Dr.
George's goal is to make each child's first visit enjoyable and stress- free. As you can see from the attached photos, the environment Dr.
George and his staff have created is not only non-threatening; it's an exciting one for his pint-sized patients. “I’m a big believer in first impressions,” he explains, “and we want to make sure that ours is the best we can possibly make it.”

Most of Dr. George's treatments utilize behavioral techniques that promote positive outcomes. “One of my favorites is 'Tell-Show-Do,'” he explains. “This technique prepares your child for dental exams and treatment by telling and showing your child what we are going to do before we do it.”

The practice also features videogames for patients and siblings in the waiting room, wide-screen televisions in treatment rooms, digital X- ray technology, eco-friendly processing methods, a reward center for successful visits, and a private parking garage. For more information, please see the Cobblestone Kids website.

What Moms Are Saying
“I just wanted to share - we had a great visit with Dr. George! [Our son] had his first dentist appointment yesterday afternoon (he's five
- we waited a long time) where they found one cavity, which was filled this morning. (appointment was at nine, we were back home before ten).
When I got home from work last night, he couldn't wait to tell me about all the prizes he got, and show me his new toothpaste and big boy flossers. He was beside himself with excitement to go back today.
Dr. George is lovely - very personable, great with our kid - we couldn't ask for any better! Thanks to everyone who recommended Dr.
George, and if you're looking for a pediatric dentist, give him a try!” — post from the Fairmountparents community on Yahoo!

  2. It is a fact that the cost of dental surgery in US and Canada is much higher than the combined cost of commuting, staying in a hotel, dental implant and vacation in Costa rica. Here metal implants are always avoided by the professional experts in place of porcelain. Apart from this Costa rica is one of the finest tourist destination for vacation.Dental holiday in Costa rica means a very cost effective dental remedy with a nice vacation with family out of your home.

  3. The children dentist can give your kids the dental care that they needs. Pediatric dental professional specializes in treating children, and you can be more certain that they understands the specific needs associated with treating their patients. The dentist will help make sure that a child's baby teeth are properly cared for. Children feel more comfortable with dental care providers so that the child is less likely to fear the dentist. Moreover the pediatric dentist helps the children to learn techniques to brush their teeth properly. The child will also learn about flossing and obtain other oral care advice.
