Kid’s Dentist: Your First Visit

Creating a positive first dental experience is crucial to helping your child develop proper dental hygiene. If they feel scared or intimidated during their first visit, then they may develop a fear of dentists that they will take with them into adulthood.

Our priority for your child’s first visit is to make your child feel comfortable and relaxed at all times, whether they’re in our reception or are in the dental chair. Keep in mind that first visits are primarily consultations, where our kid’s dentist team will meet your child and assess their needs for developing healthy teeth.

We will always create a fun, friendly and exciting atmosphere throughout your visit so that your child will feel comfortable and engaged throughout our meeting.

Below are some tips to help your child prepare for their first visit at our children’s dental clinic north Brisbane:

  • Role play and practice: Let your child know what to expect by role-playing at home. Play the dentist while your child plays the patient, and make sure that the whole thing is fun and lively.
  • Make brushing teeth more fun: Sing songs and play games while you and your child brush your teeth. This can help make proper dental care more interesting.
  • Associate dental care with positive words and feelings: Avoid using negative words like “ouch”, “hurt” and other similar words when talking about dental care. This includes not referencing drills and needles or suggesting the dentist will pull their teeth out ‘if they don’t brush them properly.’
  • Reassure your child: Remain happy, confident and excited throughout the whole process to make your child feel safe and comfortable. Remember that children follow their parents, so make sure to set a great role model for your child.
  • We recommend bringing you child’s favourite toy with them on their first appointment as provides some much needed comfort and gives them something to distract themselves with while you talk to the dentist.

Starting Them Young

Proper dental care is a part of life, so it’s important to instill good habits early on to make your kids understand that regular dental check-ups and proper dental care are important. Young children can be especially susceptible to oral health problems, as their baby teeth are not built to withstand as much bacteria as adult teeth can. If your child is in the teething stage, you may use this appointment to discuss ways you can help the teething pain, such as ointments and gels. Or if your child is a bit older, you might ask your pediatric dentist about solutions for thumb sucking or teeth grinding in sleep.

 

At Gympie Road Dental, our children’s dental centre team make this easier for you by making dental care more fun and relaxing for your kids. Our friendly staff and kid’s dentist will eliminate any fears that your kids may have about dentistry, making them feel safe and comfortable whenever they come in for a session.

 

Our experienced dentist north Brisbane will help make your children feel at-home in our clinic, instilling a sense of fun and positivity to help them build good dental habits. We’ll also use age-appropriate tools to make their experience even better, such as toys, simple reading materials and kid-friendly dental instruments.

 

We always advise parents to introduce their children to professional dental care early on, and we highly recommend taking your child in as soon as they get their first tooth. You can bring them in with you on your next check-up to introduce them to our children’s dental clinic team even before they start their regular check-ups and treatments. This way, your child can get comfortable being in the dental environment and form a positive relationship with your dentist.

 

By instilling good dental care practices and proper dental hygiene at an early age, they’re more likely to develop good dental habits and carry these into adolescence and adulthood.  Which means less problems and costly treatments required down the track.
