As you prepare for the back-to-school season, make sure dental checkups are on the list for you and your family. If your child is visiting us for their first dental appointment, it can be a bit nerve-wracking.
We’re sharing a video by Colgate that shares some ways you can put your child at ease. We like to start out with happy visits just to get your little one comfortable with us and the sounds and sights of the dentist.
You can also do your part to make it a comfortable experience at home too! Read books with your child that make the dentist seem friendly. If they have an older sibling, have them share their experiences visiting the dentist without using any scary-sounding language.
