Preparing Children for that First Visit to the Dentist
It is important to prepare young children for a first dental appointment so that regular check-ups become part of day to day life. Dentists recommend that a first appointment should be scheduled when the first teeth start to appear.
To make that first visit to the dentist less stressful:
– Practice brushing and flossing with your child at home
– Use toys to “play dentist” at home
– Choose a pediatric dentist
An experienced pediatric dentist “will help your child feel more comfortable”.
