My child dislikes going to the dentist.
Word choice! That’s one of the most important concepts relating to your child’s dental experience. When referring to the dentist, please do not use any scary sounding words. Please make sure that there are no relatives or friends who will use scary sounding words! Word choice is critical to the success of your child’s visit.
Some children may not be ready for a cleaning and exam on their first visit. They may simply come in for a chance to look around, sit in a dental chair, and then pick out a prize – and that’s perfectly fine!
The more your child is at our office, the more comfortable he or she will be and the sooner they’ll want to have their teeth sparkled and counted! We will determine your child’s comfort level and will use that to determine what we’ll do that day.
