  1. Dr. Martin Thurston was born in Miami Beach, Florida and grew up in Los Angeles, California. He Received a BA in Biology at UCSD and his Dental Degree at UCSF in 1983. His love for orthodontics began while in Dental School in which he spent a large amount of his time in the Graduate Orthodontic Clinic. Dr. Thurston traveled back south and completed his Orthodontic Residency and Masters in Oral Biology at UCLA in 1985. He then moved to San Diego where he has been in practice ever since. He started his practice in Scripps Ranch in 1985 and has been in Rancho Bernardo since 1994. Dr. Thurston is a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontics, the San Diego Academy of Orthodontics, the American Dental Association and the California Dental Association.for more info click here

  2. The main goal in the treatment of your child is to provide a positive dental experience. Since the dental experience can be a high anxiety-producing event, children react to anxiety differently than adults. Children can display anxiety in different ways depending on age, preconceived ideas and previous experiences. Once a child becomes apprehensive in the dental setting, it is very difficult to "talk the child out of the anxiety." Reversing a negative dental experience is much more difficult than preventing one.

    The use of a mild sedative to relax the child can lower the anxiety level and, therefore, allow them to be more relaxed during the dental procedure. A relaxed child is more apt to listen and understand the explanations of the procedure given by the doctor and his assistants. In addition, less anxious children accept the normal activities and noises around the mouth associated with dental procedures. Tell-Show-Do techniques, explanation and positive reinforcement techniques are all more effective in children if the anxiety level is lowered initially. Therefore, a mild sedative can be a tremendous aid to ensure that a child has a positive experience. A common misconception is that the children are "put to sleep" in the pediatric dental office. Sedative medications are used to help relax the child but at no time is any child "put to sleep." The mild sedative medication merely relaxes the child to lower his/her anxiety levels.
