We Care About Your Child's Dental Health!
It's important to start children early in the right direction to good dental hygiene. A starting time for that first dental exam is when your child has a total of eight teeth, usually around age one. You can make the first visit to enjoyable and positive. Your child should be informed of the visit and told that the dentist and staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions. The less to-do concerning the visit, the better.
Learning to be comfortable and having a great experience at our dental office is a primary goal of ours and it is the best gift you can give your child. It will ensure them a positive experience for the rest of their life and help build a healthy relationship with their dentist. It is best to refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as needle, pull, drill or hurt.
We encourage patients to come back to the treatment room alone so we may build a secure and comfortable relationship with them. We find when the parent is present, their attention to us is divided. If a parent must accompany their child, we ask that they be a silent observer. If we request a parent's presence, ask that only one parent be in the operatory and other family members stay in the reception room.
So bring your children to our office early, and we will help them achieve a healthy mouth for the rest of their life.
We look forward to meeting all your family. Call today to schedule your cleaning and exam appointment.
