The Pediatric Dentistry Department at The South Bend Dental Center provides Comfort Bears to their patients in need of that something extra during treatment.

Comfort Bears

These Comfort Bears are donated by the Delta Theta Tau sorority of New Carlisle, IN.

Jen Leonard, RDH, a long time employee and pediatric dental hygienist, partnered with her mom Steph Lloyd to provide these donated Bears.

Patients can take these Bears home with them after their appointment free of charge! This is the thanksgiving version! the christmas version will be coming soon!

So, if your child requires a “comfort bear” during their dental visit, or they just forget to bring their very own favorite comfort item to their appointment please ask a staff member for one of these Comfort Bears.

Thanks, again to the Delta Theta Tau sorority of New Carlisle, IN for donating their energies to assist children manage what can be stressful situation.
