Dr. MacLean talks about her service trips out of the country, the joys of seeing her patients grow up, watching “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” while working and bringing in the comedy to dentistry. 

We discuss the indications for referral to a pediatric dentist, ways to improve the pediatric patient experience, looking at unique “parenting” styles and how to chat with an anti-fluoridationists.

She throws down on minimally invasive dental procedures: diet & hygiene counselling, motivational interviewing and reducing trauma during the dental appointment.  She shares what’s trending right now in pediatric dentistry, specifically SDF and Glass Ionomer.
