Tips For Your Childs First Visit
1. Very young children
don’t have a realistic
sense of time. Wait until
the day of the
appointment to inform
your child.
Tell them you’re going to
visit a tooth doctor who
will count their teeth and
teach them how to take
care of their teeth.
Showing Your Child Dental Care
2. We have plenty of

toys, books and
videos in the office –
most kids don’t want
to leave!
Your Child Will Learn How To BRUSH
3. Emphasize the
adventure of visiting a
new place, meeting new
people and being the
center of attention.
Do NOT use words like
‘drill,’ ‘hurt’ or ‘needle’ –
they will only create
unsure thoughts in your
child.
Examine Infants and Toddler
While In Your Arms
4. We examine infants
and toddlers while sitting
on their parent’s lap in
the dental chair.
We Check Teeth of
Dolls and Stuffed Animals
5. If your child has a
special toy or a blanket
they rely on when they
are anxious, please bring
it to the appointment.
We check teeth of dolls
and stuffed animals, too,
so if your child has a
favorite one, please bring
it.
