We know the dentist can cause anxiety, even for adults, so we want your child to feel comfortable with their treatment. When you decide on a dental office, stick with it. The relationship between the patient and dentist will put the patient at ease. As your child becomes more accustomed to his or her surroundings at the office, their anxiety about going to the dentist
will decrease. Most preliminary dental appointments are non-invasive and designed to teach the younger patient good dental hygiene habits. You can call the office and ask what exactly to expect from your first visit. The office would be more than happy to work with you to communicate exactly what will happen, this way you know exactly what is coming.
We want a partnership between our staff and your family, so we’re are here to help. We would be happy to help with recommendations for products or dietary adjustments, for instance which foods cause more cavities. It is also important to know what emergency care is available. Knowing that emergency care is available for your child whenever it is needed can give you peace of mind. Your smile and health are important to us and starting dental care early can make a large difference moving forward in life. We will do all we can to make sure no smile is disregarded because of fear for the dental practice.
