Top 5 Tips

  1. Start going to the dentist early.
  2. Try a Meet and Greet, let children meet the dentist outside of the appointment.
  3. Let your child be curious about what's going on. Take your child with you to your visit let them watch.
  4. Consistency is essential to schedule appointments with the same dentist and hygienist.
  5. Stay away from mentioning the pain and going to the dentist in the same sentence. It's natural to want to ease your child's fear but saying the dentist won't be painful typically creates fear.
