Dental Care for Kids

Taking your kid to the dentist regularly is necessary for his oral health. But for kids, it can be scary. Here’s how to help your child overcome his fear of dentists.


Start young

We recommend bringing your child to the dentist as soon as his or her first tooth comes out. This will also help make dental care a regular part of his or her life.

Before you go

Play pretend dentist with your child to give him or her an idea of what to expect so that he or she is more comfortable for the real visit.



Emphasize the importance of oral hygiene

Explain to your child the dentist will take care of his teeth to keep the cavities and pain away so that they are strong enough for him or her to eat.

First Dentist Visit

The first visit is usually short and involves very little treatment. This gives your child the opportunity to meet our dentist in a friendly way. During the exam, our dentist will check all of your child’s existing teeth, gums, jaw, and oral tissues and examine your child’s bite for any potential problems.



Prepare to hold their hand or keep your distance

It’s normal for your child to cry, wary, or refuse to be examined. Let our dentist guide you; he might ask you to hold your little one’s hand for comfort or be asked to wait in the reception area so that trust can be built between your child and our dentist.
