We can work with you to make your child's first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive. Do you think your child might be concerned about what will happen at the dentist? Try explaining in advance that their teeth will be examined and cleaned. Dentists usually like a parent to be present for the examination of any child under the age of three.
Some parents sit in the dental chair and hold the young patient on their lap during the first few examinations. It can also be helpful to take younger children along for an older sibling’s visit so that they can get used to the practice, staff, and noises such as drills and suction.
