Emotional Support Dog – Wylie, TX
Get to Know Cooper
Our Emotional Support Dog
As a dentist at Wylie Children's Dentistry, Dr. Allen Pearson knows firsthand the importance of therapy dogs in helping children with anxiety at the dental office. One of the therapy dogs at the practice is Cooper, a nine-year-old Boxer who has been providing comfort and support to children at the dental office for several years. Cooper is a well-trained and gentle dog with a friendly demeanor that makes him an ideal companion for children. We encourage parents to ask for Cooper to visit with their kids when they come to the dental practice for their visit. Dr. Pearson has found that interacting with Cooper can help children feel more relaxed and at ease, which can make the dental experience less stressful and more enjoyable. Overall, the presence of a therapy dog like Cooper can be a valuable tool for helping children cope with anxiety at the dental office and can create a more positive and welcoming atmosphere for all patients.
