We are excited to see you and your child for his or her first visit! There are several things you can do to help prepare your child for this day.
First, you can explain where the two of you are going and show enthusiasm and excitement for this big day. Explain how important it is to have healthy teeth and that a great smile makes you and others feel happy. You can also play games with your child to practice going to the dentist by having them lie down and "open wide" while you brush their teeth. Most importantly, maintain a positive attitude and try to avoid scary words like drill, shot, or pull. Let your little one know you will be with him or her at all times and you are excited to share this first experience!
The ADA (American Dental Association) and the AAPD (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry) recommend that children visit the dentist no later than one year of age. Studies show that early preventive visits are easier on children and actually reduce dental costs for parents over time.
