Pediatric Dentistry in a Post Covid World

On this Facebook Live series converted into a podcast, Len sits down with Jonelle Anamelechi to discuss how the 'face' of pediatric dentistry will certainly change. This is a time us more than ever to use our emotional intelligence, and behavior management (of parent and patient) skills to continue to have our families be raving fans.

Takeaways from this episode include:

1) Pediatric Dentistry now in a world of 'hurry up' --prior to COVID-19.

2) Pediatric Denistry now in a world of 'slow down' -during COVID-19.

3) The core skills that make us great in pediatric dentistry--back to the basics.

Is wearing a pizza hat apart of your team’s job duties? Is knowing how to sing “I will survive” in your best Chipmonk voice something you do on a daily basis? No? Well, at Dr. Anamelechi’s office it is. Meet Dr. Jonelle Anamelechi, Mom of two, Board Certified Pediatric Dentist and owner of Children’s Choice Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics.
