Around age one, your child should have their first visit to our office. Beginning at this age allows your little one to get to know the office, Dr. Parvin, and the staff. Sitting on your lap during your visit helps build trust and will help put your child at ease during future appointments. Throughout their childhood, children should be encouraged to talk to you, and to us, about any fears or anxieties about going to the dentist.
Parents should not make a big deal out of the visit, and refrain from using any words that could cause unnecessary fear, such as “needle” or “drill.” We are experienced in dealing with children with anxiety and can explain treatment procedures in a positive and pleasant manner to avoid any anxious or negative feelings toward dentistry.
We encourage parents to allow the staff to establish a positive rapport with the child, thereby gaining confidence quickly. This can be accomplished by allowing children ages 3 and older to come back by themselves.
We 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 a good dental health program with you and your child to ensure a healthy and beautiful smile for life!
