Caleb Farao, 5, was full of smiles during his first visit to the dentist thanks to Dentico’s Dr Nichole Hendricks great service and friendliness.
This is according to his mother Nadia Farao, who recently took her son to Dentico’s surgery in Beverley Park, Eerste River.
Young Caleb needed a tooth extracted, so she feared he’d have a negative first experience. However, she smiled with pride as her son enjoyed a painless treatment.
“I was definitely scared that he’d go through pain. You’d think tooth extractions would be painful, especially for young children,” explained Nadia.
“But I was very happy to see him comfortable and smiling. Dr Hendricks did a great job – no tears at all!”
Nadia is already planning a second visit in the coming weeks.
“I was very impressed about Dr Hendricks’ modern equipment and affordable prices. My medical aid was able to cover the entire treatment, which was great,” she added.
“Caleb will need to go back for another tooth extraction. I feel comfortable knowing that Dr Hendricks will take good care of my son. He’s even excited to go back!”
Nadia, who lives in Eerste River, said she’d definitely recommend Dentico to all parents who need to take their kids to a dentist.
“Dr Hendricks is not only good at what she does, but she is very friendly. She knows how to work with the youth, which is very important. Because of those good experiences, children will look forward to going to the dentist to ensure they have good dental health. It’s great we have such a great professional working in our community.”
