There is a separate desensitization room where audio-visual aids like cartoon movies, health awareness documentary (how to brush? How to keep teeth clean? ) are shown.
All the Post Graduation section dental chairs are equipped with mini screen T.V.s which makes the child more enthusiastic to sit on the dental chair and get the treatment done.

Minor operation theatre has special attraction i.e. ceiling mounted T.V. which makes child more attractive and comfortable on the dental chair.
