Welcome to the Leach Lake Lodge! We have created a peaceful escape that is welcoming to children of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. Take our virtual tour below, then give us a call to schedule an in-office tour. We encourage new patient families to visit our office before their appointment, especially if the child is anxious about coming. New environments can be scary, but we strive to create a fun and comfortable setting for both our patients and their parents. If you have any questions, please give our friendly team a call at 770-521-8855.
Who knew that taking your kids to the dentist could turn into a moment of relaxation for you? That is the exact thought process that became the driving force behind the design of the waiting room that you will find at Michael J. Leach D.D.S. Pediatric Dentistry. We are proud to offer a complimentary coffee, tea, and water bar along with two massaging chairs for our parents to enjoy while their kids are getting their teeth cleaned. Don’t worry; we did not forget about the kids. They can choose to enjoy the movie we have playing, playing with the train table, or even choose from one of our many video games in our game room. While your kids might be having fun upfront, we have two distinct areas in the back designed, especially for kids aged 3-13 and 14+ that they will be able to enjoy while they wait their turn.
Patient Hangout Areas
As previously mentioned, the pediatric dental office of Michael J. Leach D.D.S. offers two separate spaces for our patients to enjoy once they are checked in. Ages 3-13 get to hang out in The Treehouse that is complete with a movie, books, a video game console, and a retro Centipede game. Ages 14+ chill out in The Den where they can enjoy an age-appropriate movie, massaging chairs, video games, charging cords, and a retro Pac-Man game. Regardless of if your child is 3 or 18, our office has elements that are designed specifically with them in mind.
Our Hygiene Bay
We are proud to offer an open hygiene bay for our patients. The kids present a calmer demeanor when they can see what is going on around them. Daily we utilize a “tell, show, do theory.” We tell them what we are going to do, we show them what we are going to use, and we do what we told them we would. Our two registered hygienists focus 100% on their patients and making them feel comfortable and at ease. Each chair is strategically placed below a TV to allow the children to take their minds off, getting their teeth clean and examined. The open bay allows our patients to see how Dr. Leach and our hygienists are interacting with other patients during their appointment, which in turn helps them to relax and know that it is okay. It is important to note that while our open bay works great most of our patients, there is a handful that are very sensitive to their surroundings, and we glad to accommodate them in a private room. We use our open bay specifically for cleanings and dental health checkups. If your child needs sealants, extractions, bonds, or any additional dental work completed, they will be treated in a private room that is designed specifically for different dental treatments.
Ah, every patient’s favorite room! Following the completion of your child’s appointment, they get to pick out, not one, but TWO PRIZES! Dr. Leach will take this time to check their teeth, make sure there are no problem spots, and talk to the parents. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s teeth or oral health, this is the best time to ask.
