How can I prepare my child for their first visit?
Tips For a Positive Dental Visit
  • Schedule your child's first visit between the arrival of the first tooth and their first birthday.
  • If possible, schedule a morning appointment when children tend to be rested, happy and cooperative.
  • Please stay positive! Your dentist will help keep your child's teeth healthy; please keep to yourself any anxiety that you might feel about dental visits.
  • Please don't bribe your child to go to the dentist, or use the visit as a punishment or threat!
Make your child's dental visit an enjoyable outing. Teaching your child good oral hygiene habits early on can lead to a lifetime of good dental health.
