How to prepare your child’s first dental visit
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child sees a dentist as soon as the first tooth erupts but no later than their first birthday. Your child’s early dental experiences will shape his or her attitude towards dental care for life.
At Dental Smiles, we want to ensure that your child enjoys pleasant and comfortable moments with us. We use the “Tell-Show-Do” technique to help your child understand what to expect next. This means that we first explain what we will do in simple, non-threatening words. Then, we’ll show them by demonstrating what we will do. Finally, we will do what we showed.
We also use positive reinforcement and distraction technique to keep kids engaged and motivated.
Dental Tip: Avoid using scary words, such as needle, drill, pull, or hurt. Answer their questions honestly but in general terms. If you are not sure how to answer a question, ask the dentist. Most importantly, RELAX and BE POSITIVE about the experience to help your child to stay positive too.
