Your child’s first dental visit should be by the first birthday.
How do I prepare my child for the first dental visit?
You as a parent play an integral role in preparing your child for his/her first visit. We suggest that when describing the dental experience to your child you do not use words such as “pain” or any other words which may be associated with discomfort. Introduce the visit as a great opportunity to meet people who are excited to see your child and want to help him/her stay healthy. Tell your child that he/she can play in the dental chair! The Dentist will “count” the teeth and may “brush” or “take pictures” of the teeth. It is very important to use child friendly terms and simple explanations when describing dental instruments and procedures.
We want to create a very positive, friendly and non-threatening
environment for your child
