What are some facts I should know before taking my child for their first dental visit?

Here are some tips for a positive first dental visit

  • Arrive earlier before the appointment time to let your child become familiar with the dental environment and the dental team
  • Once in the surgery, allow the dentist to speak to your child directly. Often our dentist will ask silly questions to assess how well your child is responding so we ask for your cooperation in allowing your child to communicate with us directly rather than answering for your child.
  • Make the appointment early in the day so your child is bright and happy
  • Talk about dental visits positively, like they are teeth doctors that help keeps our teeth shiny and healthy! Highlight the fun, interesting aspect of visiting a dental clinic! Don’t scare them!
