Your child’s initial dental appointment can be a nerve-wracking one! Dr. Jason Lane and our team love kids and we know that it can be hard for them to understand what’s going on. Dental care, however, is essential to your child’s healthy and happy smile.
Here are some ways you can work with us to make your little one’s first visit a relaxing one.
Talk it Up Positively
Your child will pick up on your feelings about the appointment. Try to keep your tone upbeat and casual. Don’t give them anything to worry about by using “trigger” words like “hurt” or “afraid.” Even if you say “this won’t hurt” or “don’t be afraid,” your son or daughter will probably single out just those bad words and wonder whether there is anything they should be concerned about.
Get Them Used to a Healthy Smile Routine
Little kids who are used to having mom or dad clean their teeth are usually okay with letting a dentist check their mouths. In terms, your child can understand, help them to see how a dental visit connects to their healthy smile.
