We find that preparing your child for their first dental visit is immensely helpful. For little ones, early appointments are the way to go, as children tend to be fresher and more alert, meaning they’re less likely to lose patience. If they are old enough, try to get them excited about going to the dentist, and give them some idea of what to expect while explaining the importance of the visit. Above all, provide them with moral support and comfort in an effort to reduce any anxieties or fears they may have about their visit. At Pearwood Pediatric Dentistry, we believe that to truly provide healthy smiles to our patients, working with our patient families as a team is more than beneficial, it’s essential!
