How should I prepare my child for the first visit?
The less prepared the better. Children get apprehensive when
they sense that something is really, really important. The first visit
is simply a get acquainted time in a consult room with the parent present.
A simple exam is done with a flashlight and mirror. If problems are
already present, referral to a pediatric dentist may be advised. For
the child with no early problems, a similar exam is scheduled every
6 months until the child is ready to go to a treatment room for preventive
care without the parent. Our experience is undeniable: children who
of their own accord, in their own time, receive care without the parent
present grow up with absolutely no fear of dentists.
