Help Your Child to Overcome Dental Anxiety

People are sometimes nervous about visiting the dentist, but you can help your child overcome any fear or anxiety.

Key takeaways:

– Start scheduling regular appointments when your child’s first tooth arrives.

– Remain calm and reassuring when talking about the dentist.

– Choose an experienced, child-friendly dental practice.

Your child’s long-term relationship with their dentist is important and can help maintain healthy teeth, gums and smiles.

“Dentists who see children know how to communicate with them on an age-appropriate level about what will happen and the tools that are used in the dentist’s office.”
