Visiting a dentist for the first time can be confusing and even slightly frightening for some children. This is why parents should begin to prepare them for what they can expect.
Indeed, fostering healthy teeth and gums at an early age is the best way to avoid problems in the future.
Here are three effective strategies to embrace:
- Always answer any questions that your child may have.
- Play a game of dentist at home.
- Explain why dentists are important as well as some of the procedures that will be performed.
"Your child will likely have some questions or even concerns about going to the dentist."
