Children's Dentistry

This is why pleasant and comfortable first visits to the dentist are so important. There are also a few things you can do at home to help your child get ready for their next dental visit.

Tips to Help Your Child with Dental Anxiety

  • Talk about visiting the dentist. Prepare them for the visit so it's not scary. You may also want to find books to read with them that put a positive spin on visiting the dentist.
  • Lead by example. Let your child watch you brush and floss your own teeth so they can get comfortable with the routine. Consider bringing them along to your own dental cleaning and examination so they can see that the dentist's office is a friendly place and look forward to their own visit.
  • Make brushing fun. Let your child choose their own colourful toothbrush and exciting flavor of toothpaste. Getting them involved in the process will get them excited about their own routine.

The most important thing to remember is that if you have your own fears of the dentist, do not project these anxieties onto your child. Talk about the dentist in a positive way and do your best to keep a smile on your face during visits.
