Frequently Asked Questions
- Use visual aids. You can use picture schedules, videos, social stories, and other visual aids to show your child what to expect.
- Take your child for a practice visit. This can be the same as the orientation visit, or it can be a “dry run” of an appointment where the dentist doesn’t actually work on your child’s teeth yet.
- Bring items to fulfill sensory needs. Bringing your child’s favorite fidgets and toys so they can play during the appointment will be helpful.
- Reduce unnecessary stress before and after. Reduce demands by wearing comfortable clothes, getting lots of rest, eliminating unnecessary activities (like grocery shopping — order for pick up!), and doing the things that relax your child. Your child will be able to regulate better when every day stressors are kept at a minimum.

With a philosophy rooted in service to the community, Dr. Brandon Larkin, a Flint, Michigan native, is steadfast in his determination to help the community both in and out of the dental chair. Specializing in Pediatric Dentistry, he is recognized as an influential practitioner in dental trauma and craniofacial abnormalities. A graduate of the University of Michigan, frequently recognized as the top dental school in the country Dr. Larkin received his doctorate in Dental Surgery through a rigorous dental and surgical curriculum. That was proceeded by a Bachelors Degree of Brain Development and Cranial Neuroscience. He served and trained at the Miami Childrens Hospital where he specialized in providing world class dental care to children, teens and chronic patients requiring specialized healthcare needs. His pre and post-doctoral research in the dental field has afforded him national recognition as a speaker at the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

She completed her Neuro-oncology fellowship at the world-renowned St. Judes Childrens Research Hospital in Memphis, TN.

They are grateful for the opportunity to the serve the Tampa community. Together they are avid board game players, huge college football fans and enjoy exploring new spots in Tampa.
Dr. Lexie has practiced as a general dentist for six years in Canada and found that her passion was working with children. Her desire was to provide the best possible care for children, so she went back to school in her thirties to specialize in Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Connecticut. In 2003, she moved to New Port Richey, Florida, where she started working between offices in New Port Richey, Clearwater and Plant City. In her own words, I have been blessed and honored to have the opportunity to be a part of the team at A Safari Dental.
On why I do what I do and why you should trust Dr. Lexie with your smile: I love making my patients feel comfortable, calm and relaxed. I love making my patients and parents happy, and providing an enjoyable dental experience. I have a passion to provide excellent care. I treat every patient as if they were my own child. I love getting hugs from my patients!!!

She obtained her dental degree from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry and completed her pediatric residency at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. While in residency, Dr. Sara also attended school for her Masters in Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Sara took an unconventional path before becoming a pediatric dentist. She attended Florida State University for her bachelors degree in Accounting and Finance. Once she obtained her Bachelor of Science, she decided to go back to school for her post-bachelors degree in Biology and minor in Chemistry. While in dental school, she found her passion working with kids.

They include you in the consult and decisions and I never feel pushed into any treatment. Highly recommend. Mom of two kids - boy and girl.
Amanda Green a year ago Weve been coming here for a while now and they're so great with our son! They explain every step of the cleaning and exam to mom and dad and also to the little one! They give you cool sunglasses so the light doesn't hurt the eyes and also give you prizes after! They're very personable.

nicole diambrosio a year ago Where do I begin? My 7 yo developed pretty severe dental anxiety a couple years ago, not really sure why. We were going to No sugar bugs club every 3 months ( the dentist suggested this to try and get my son more comfortable with the process). The staff there was great, the dentist, not so much. Let's just say his bedside manner needed some work. They wanted to put a mouth full of caps in my kids mouth after just 3 months prior telling me his teeth were fine. I was freaking out. Sought out a second opinion from A Safari Dental. The dental assistant who was taking care of my son couldn't have been more perfect for the job. Paige spent THIRTY MINUTES simply talking to my very anxious little man. Letting him hold the xray films, play with gloves, watch lizards out the window, etc. She made him feel so comfortable that he actually let her take all the xrays she needed with no issues at all. This kid cried every time I mentioned the dentist prior to this. The dentist came in with the same demeanor as Paige and again, he was completely cooperative. I was floored. I have been dealing with panic attacks for two years any time we had to see a dentist and this kid was laughing and smiling when we left. It was nothing short of a miracle. Oh and after xrays, my son had NOT ONE CAVITY. Just a little staining on his teeth. They gave me a prescription fluoride toothpaste to use nightly. I can't thank the entire staff enough but especially Paige, who literally had the patience of a saint. We finally found an amazing dentist.
April Wilmoth a year ago Wonderful practice! From the front desk to the hygienists and of course Dr.Brandon is A+. Thank you for your kindness, care, and professional staff.
Samantha Cutrone a year ago Thank you!
Mona Louka a year ago Love the atmosphere and everyone
