Building Positive Experiences At The Bowmanville Dental Office!
A lifelong healthy mouth comes much easier when you’re not scared to visit the dentist! It’s really important for your little ones to have a good first visit. Kids should be made to feel comfortable and safe, especially during their first visit, because it might just set the tone for many visits to come!
A what age should my child visit the dentist?
Most children come in to get a feel for the experience and take a fun ride in the chair, at about age 2. If they’ve got older siblings, they can come in together, to make the first visit more comfortable for the youngest.
It’s all about letting little ones explore and become comfortable with the dental office. After that, you’d be surprised how many kids come in with big smiles, eager to see their favorite hygienist or dentist! And why not? They know they are safe, they get to watch tv during their appointment, and they’ll get a free toy on their way out! Of course there are puzzles, colouring books and a game cube in the waiting room too! And even tooth brushes from the dentist are fun, with colourful beloved cartoon characters on them!
