Your Child’s First Dental Visit
When making important decisions about your children’s health and well-being, don’t forget about their teeth and gums. Compared to kids with poor oral health, children who establish good oral hygiene habits at a young age are more likely to continue excellent brushing and flossing as adults, experience far fewer dental problems throughout life, maintain a positive self-image, and perform better in school. As a parent, you play a vital role in helping kids establish proper dental care — and smiles — that last a lifetime.
It’s also very important for you as a parent to keep the visit a low-stress event and not get them worked up about it. Try to refrain from using words that could cause unnecessary panic, such as “needle” or “drill.” We have a great deal of experience in treating nervous kids and can explain what’s happening in a positive and non-threatening way.
Our friendly team at Tallgrass Dental will record the child’s dental and medical history, complete a comprehensive examination and discuss any findings with you. We will also review the importance of maintaining good dental health with you and your child to ensure a healthy and beautiful smile for life!
