3
It is never too soon to begin thinking about
your childs dental health.
  • There will be steps you need to take to make
    sure the first visit goes smoothly.

4
After making it through the visit, each
experience should become easier.
Here are some tips to use when preparing your
child for his first visit to the dentist.
5
WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME?
6
Many parents wonder when they should begin
taking their children to the dentist.
A good time is when their first tooth erupts or
near their first birthday.
7
Keep in mind that baby teeth are more
susceptible to decay, in comparison to adult
teeth.
Therefore, an early intervention could help
ensure that your childs baby teeth stay healthy.
8
If you have waited until after their first
birthday, bring them in as soon as possible.
  • It is never too late to take your child to the
    dentist.

9
ORAL CARE
10
You should start brushing your childs teeth as
soon as they come in.
Practice makes perfect
11
Plain water and soft-bristled, baby safe
toothbrushes are what you will need to use.
Make this a group activity that your children
can do together, or with you and your spouse.
12
However, make sure you explain that toothbrushes
are not toys.
Your child should always be supervised when
using this dental tool.
13
You can allow him to practice various motions of
brushing his teeth, but make sure you are there
to help him brush properly.
14
To make brushing easier in the beginning, you
should encourage participation from your child.
15
Establishing good oral hygiene and habits early
can follow your child into adulthood, and help
him maintain healthy teeth and a healthy smile.
16
ATTITUDE MATTERS
17
It is important for you to be positive and
relaxed when taking your child to the dentist.
  • Children are very sensitive and perceptive to
    their parents attitudes.

18
They will mirror the behavior of their mothers
and fathers.
Therefore, if you are relaxed, your child will
be more at ease on their first dental visit.
19
CHOOSING A DENTIST
20
Find a great dental office that is conveniently
located, offers flexible appointments and is
kid-friendly.
21
Youll want to choose an office where the
dentists and staff are caring, compassionate and
helpful.
22
If you are comfortable with the dentist, this
will lead to a positive outcome for you and your
child.
23
PREPARE A LIST OF QUESTIONS
24
You will need to learn as much about your
childs dental health as possible.
25
The more you know, the better your chances are
of protecting their teeth from damage and
serious health issues.
26
  • Although learning about how to protect children
    from cavities is extremely important, there are
    other important facts that you should know, such
    as
  • How to care for a childs mouth

27
  • How to use fluoride properly
  • Bad oral habits, including thumb or
    finger-sucking
  • How diet affects oral health

28
  • Ways to prevent accidents that damage the face
    and teeth
  • Teeth development and
  • important milestones

29
After the first dental visit, you should have a
clear idea of what your responsibilities are,
pertaining to caring for your childs teeth.
30
You should also know about your childs
developments, and the likeliness of cavities and
bites.
31
Be sure to ask the dentist when you should
schedule your childs next visit.
32
You deserve a gold star for putting the dental
health of your children on the right track.
Good oral care could lead to healthy smiles.
33
With the right type of assistance and
preparation, your child will have a successful
first dental experience, and many more visits
in the future!
34
If you are seeking professional dental advice,
it's time to call Shumway Dental Care.
35
Their Chandler dentists will ask you questions,
examine you, and determine exactly what needs to
be done to get you back to normal.
