Prepare Your Child
It is very important for your child’s first visit to the dentist to be a positive experience. It is this experience that he/she will carry with him/her for a very long time. Do not wait for your child to have a toothache before you bring him/her to the dentist. By then, the child is anxious and frightened, you are anxious, frightened and tired, and the dentist is just plain frightened of not being able to do a good job comfortably. This no-win situation can be easily avoided.

Ways to prepare your child for the first dental visit:

  • Play “dentist” at home. Have your child open wide while you count the teeth. Make it fun and explain that this is what the dentist is going to do.
  • Do not say “It won’t hurt” because until then your child has no concept of why anything should hurt at all.
  • Simplify the procedures; counting the teeth, taking pictures of the teeth, cleaning the teeth.
  • Take the child with you on your appointment or an appointment of an older sibling. This way he/she can see how easy the procedures are and is less likely to have a problem on his/her own appointment.
  • Do not build up the appointment. Keep it routine.
  • Don’t be afraid to bring a favourite stuffed animal or a toy along.
