Your Child’s First Dental Visit

Dental care is essential for kids and parents but many parents don’t know when to start bringing their kids to the dentist. We recommend that dental visits should start at age three unless you have concerns about their oral health before then. Here are some important tips for a positive and effective visit.
  •  Make morning appointments when children are rested and cooperative.
  •  If you are nervous about your child’s first dental visit, try not to let them pick up on your emotions, so stay positive.
  • Never use a dental visit as a threat or punishment.
  • Don’t bribe your child.
  • Talk to your child about visiting the dentist and explain the benefits of proper dental care.  Try reading a book about going to the  dentist.
