What to Expect at the First Visit

 

Before the first visit:  Please discuss the positive aspects of dentistry with your child.  Convey good feelings to your child about dental visits being a part of growing up.  Explain that the dentist will look at and count all of his or her teeth.  Please do not tell your child that the dentist will not hurt, as this may have never entered his or her mind.  Rather, emphasize that the dentist will be gentle and friendly.  Avoid using words like needle, drill, shot, pull or any other word suggesting unpleasantness.  Expect your child to do well and enjoy the first visit to our office and chances are, they will.
