How to Prepare Child for First Dental Visit
2
Dental Visits
  • Not all children are cooperative when it comes to
    dental visits. If you have a little one at home
    or expecting a baby soon, you may want to make
    them comfortable about dental visits early on.
  • Children are more susceptible to tooth decay than
    adults. By keeping their teeth healthy, you can
    help them ensure a lifetime of healthy smiles.
    Kids can also avoid the need for serious dental
    treatments in the future.

  • Here are important tips to prepare your kids for
    their
  • first dental visit

4
Introduce Kids to Dental Care
  • Look out for apps, toys, or songs that will help
    you introduce the little ones to their teeth and
    how to care for them. Its normal, after all, for
    kids to learn more about their body so make sure
    to include their teeth.
  • This will make them feel more at ease to talk
    about dental care. Parents are advised to bring
    kids to the dental office once their first tooth
    comes in. But its never too late if your child
    is a bit older now.

5
Make Explanations about Dental Visits Simple
  • When your child asks you about dental visits,
    make sure to keep your explanation simple and
    positive. Watch out for words you use as your
    child may recall them well and associate those
    with a dental visit.
  • Fear, anxiety, punishment should be set aside at
    this moment. Instead, you can tell the little
    ones that their dentist would only count their
    teeth or brush with them so they can show how
    good they are at cleaning their teeth.

6
Brush with the Kids
  • Practice makes perfect. Once the little ones are
    ready to brush their teeth, make sure to keep
    them company.
  • They need to make it a habit to brush and floss
    regularly, and you play an important part as
    their role model. Make them excited with brushing
    by following it up with a fun activity.

7
Finally, Work with aDentist that you Trust
  • You and your dentist will be working together to
    keep kids motivated about dental care. Do your
    research early on about nearby dental offices
    that are experts on working with young patients.
  • The team should be compassionate and
    accommodating. And the dental clinic should be
    near your home or the kids school. Consider the
    practice hours too.

  • Stay positive at all times as every emotion you
    show can affect your little one. Show them youre
