JoJo is a comfort dog at Pediatric Dentistry of Northbrook who is specially trained to bring a calming influence and help ease anxiety.
“A lot of the time, those patients would need nitrous oxide or other sedative to help them relax. But when JoJo comes in with them and sits in the chair, they’re comforted. They can just sit and pet her as they’re getting their teeth cleaned. She does a great job with them,” clinic staffer Veronica Renteria told The Dodo.
