Getting Your Child Ready For The Kids Dentist

If it is your first time to take your child to a kids dentist, you both might not know what to expect. The entire dental experience can be a daunting and stressful one for any adult, so imagine just how much more distressing it can be to your child. Because your child’s first impressions of the dentist will have a lot to do with how he develops a healthy regard for dental care as he grows up, it is essential for you to guide him through the process and to make the transition as painless as possible.

How do you begin? Like all things, proper dental care begins at home. If you are already instructing your child as to proper brushing and flossing habits, you are off to a good start. You might also want to explain that what the kids dentist will do is similar to what you are both already doing at home, but in a more effective and thorough manner.

You might also want to take your child to the dentist for a visit just to familiarize him with the clinic and to get to know the dentist in a stress-free situation. By doing so, your child will be much more open to the experience, and will be less likely to be traumatized by the experience by the time the actual visit is scheduled.

At Great Grins Children’s Dentistry, we want to make your child’s first dentist visit as stress-free as possible. Call us at (520) 325-4746 and we can help you do so.
