Your Child's First Visit to the Dentist
It's important for the first visit to be a positive experience for your child. It is recommended that you show your child that visiting the dentist is normal, interesting and pleasant.
You may want to read a book about going to the dentist with your child or "play dentist".
It is important to remember that an anxious parent can transfer anxiety to the child. If you yourself feel uneasy about going to the dentist, try hard not to let your child know.
Tips for Parents
- Counting teeth is a fun way to get your child interested in his or her own dental development
- Daily flossing is vital because it cleans where the toothbrush can't - between teeth and below the gum line
- Try hard to get the bedtime brushing in, it's important for dental health and for instilling good habits
- Calcium is necessary for healthy teeth and bones. Dairy products (milk, cheese and yogurt) are great sources of calcium
