Is Your Child Ready to See the Dentist?

For many parents, bringing a child to see the dentist for the first time can be stressful, especially if the adult has some dental anxiety. Our team at [practice_name] is happy to offer reassurance and assist you in creating a positive experience for your child. We offer some helpful pointers as you prepare your child for a dental appointment, including the following general guidelines:

First, we invite you to arrange an appointment during the time of day when your child has had an opportunity to be well-rested and avoid visits during their usual nap time if possible. If you have an older child, we can help you schedule appointments during their extracurricular activities so that they are not feeling sad or tired when they arrive for the visit.

Second, you can help your child by setting a good example of how to act at a dental office to show there is no cause for worry. If you are due for professional teeth cleaning, you can attend your checkup first so that your child can witness your calm attitude and behave likewise.

Third, try to leave behind any personal anxiety you may feel about the dentist. After all, children can pick up on nervousness or anxiety and become distressed. During the car ride to our office, you can meditate or listen to soothing music to help you feel calm while you are with the dentist.

We are here to support you in helping your child have a very positive dental experience in [city], [state], and we invite you to contact our dentist, Dr. [doctor_name], at [phone] for more information on optimizing their visit.
