Well, I know in Houston, we had a separate place. We had kind of a children's, and had a completely different setup, and motif, and everything, but for us, since my wife pretty much brings them, it was more convenient for her to bring them here, same place that she and I go, and schedule the appointments.
The fact that they have TVs on the ceiling, I think the kids can watch whatever they want, and they stay entertained. I never had a problem with the dentist when I was a kid, but even my kids, that would have been concerned, or would have had a concern about, they've never complained. They've never come away saying, “You know, he hurt me, or this didn't ...“ So, it's been great.
Even between the folks who are kind of kid-focused, my kids love Dr. Kerbel and the treatment that we've received here, so it's been good. He's very knowledgeable in what he does, and he's meticulous. He's a detail-oriented person, and that's the kind of people you want working in your mouth.
The other thing is that his office is ... He's got all the latest and greatest technology. Every time I come in, I see something new, see something that he's changed or made better. You know, that's usually the question I ask other people, when they're going to their dentist, is, “Hey, are they keeping up with technology?“ And Dr. Kerbel definitely does, so that's why I prefer him.
