We believe that a fun, casual first meeting is the ideal way to introduce the sights and sounds of the dental office to your child. We pace this visit based on your child's interest and response to the dental environment. Sometimes it is just a ride in the "spaceship" (dental chair) or a teeth cleaning while your child holds "Mr. Thirsty" (the suction) and learns what we are all about.
We will also teach both you and your child how to make brushing and healthy eating habits fun and rewarding to help take care of that precious smile!
Before You Arrive
Prior to your child’s appointment, tell them that someone will look at their teeth and clean them. Try showing them pictures of dentists or have fun role-playing, acting like you or your child are the dentist. One of our favorite children’s books is “Show Me Your Smile!: A Visit to the Dentist (Dora the Explorer)" by Christina Ricci .
If you have questions about your child’s first visit to the dentist, give us a call! 706.742.7000
