A child’s first dental appointment is very important for setting the foundation of oral healthcare. Preparing them for a dental visit can be a challenge. Young kids may not fully understand the concept of the dentist. Take time to introduce the dentist to your child the same way you would a doctor or even a first haircut appointment.
Explain what will happen at the appointment to your child. Discuss how the hygienist will clean each tooth and the dentist will look at their smile to make sure it’s healthy. Reassure them that the appointment is enjoyable and nothing to fear. Reading a children’s book about going to the dentist is another helpful tool!
