We have a few handy tips and pointers for that first dental visit.

  • Playing pretend dentist and giving your child an idea of what to expect while being positive about the experience
  • Reminding your child that going to the dentist is a sign that they are growing up
  • The dentist will explain everything in a language your child can understand using pleasant and non threatening words
  • Libraries are a great source of DVD's and books that will help prepare you and your child
  • The less fuss made about the visit, the better
  • The dentist prefers the first visit to be comfortable for the child and making the surroundings familiar and fun.  Having this first visit as a ride in the chair, counting of teeth, can be very helpful.

Ensuring the first visit to be a positive one is the best way to give your child good dental health and keep them smiling for life!
