HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR MY CHILD’S VISIT?
Schedule your child’s first visit between the arrival of the first tooth and his first birthday. If possible, schedule a morning appointment when children tend to be rested and cooperative.
Stay positive! Dr. Sara will help to keep your child’s teeth healthy; keep to yourself any anxiety that you might feel about dental visits. Never bribe your child to go to the dentist or use the visit as a punishment or threat! If your child is under three, then Dr. Sara will recommend doing a “lap to lap” exam in which the child will be examined while sitting in your lap with you facing Dr. Sara. Try to make your child’s dental visit an enjoyable outing. Teaching your child good oral hygiene habits early can lead to a lifetime of good dental health.
