How can you prepare your child for that first visit to the dentist?


Posted: 05/25/18


  1. Take turns playing dentist when you clean your child's teeth.
  2. Demonstrate to your child how to open your mouth wide for the dentist.
  3. Explain that they'll get to ride up and down in a special chair.
  4. Use a doll or toy to demonstrate if your child is reluctant.
  5. Don't go into too many details about the procedure or instruments. Don't use negative words like "Hurt" or "Pain" .
  6. Bring your child along on one of your visits to meet the dental staff.
  7. Most of all, let your child see that you take dental visits in stride, without fear or anxiety.
