Tips For Preparing Your Child For Their Visit
Reducing the stress by letting them know that the dentist and staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions.
Avoid giving any specific details on what’s involved and how long it will take as every child is different and so are dental assessments. For instance, if your 1 year old is being seen by our office for the very first time, simply tell them that the dentist is going to count their teeth.
Let them know that you will be in the same room with them.
Tell them that all Stellar Kids Dentistry staff members are really good with kids, and they will make their visit at the dentist a fun time.
Avoid using words associated with fear, such as “needle,” “pull,” “drill” or “hurt.”
