And what a reality this dream has become. When patients first enter the building, they are greeted by a friendly and knowlegable staff. There is a special “kid size” door that the little patients can enter and exit. It is when encountering that tiny door that tiny patients know that this is not going to be a normal visit.
“We want the visit to be an experience,” Dr. Hyden said. “We've installed video games inside the waiting rooms so they can feel more at ease. We also have small plasma screens above the dentist chair so they can watch cartoons while we work.”
In short, with all the kid-friendly amenities offered at Dr. Hyden's office, local children will soon be marking off the days until their next visit to the friendly office!
Dr. Seth Hyden grew up in Prestonsburg and attended Eastern Kentucky University. Following completion of his undergraduate studies at EKU, he enrolled as a dental student at the University of Louisville, following in the footsteps of his grandfather, Dr. Alan Hyden, also a U of L graduate.
