Your child’s first visit to the dentist might cause them to feel worried or upset. As a parent, it is important to plan ahead for ways to make them feel calm and happy about their first or first few dental experiences so that they know the dentist is a good place that they will look forward to returning to. Children’s Dental Group, the premier San Jose pediatric dental office is equipped with all the goodies that a child needs to feel safe and excited, such as toys, friendly staff members, movies, video games, rides, and more, but it is helpful to reassure and comfort your child about the impending dental experience before you arrive at our San Jose pediatric dental office. We are here to give you some advice about handling your children’s first experiences at the dentist.
One of the best things to do is to let your child know exactly what to expect. Tell your child what the dentist will be like, and explain the different exams and procedures that will take place. Let your child know that everyone there is friendly and caring, and that there will be a lot of fun things for him to do at our San Jose pediatric dental office. For your child’s first visit, we recommend that you come a few minutes earlier than your schedule appointment so you can walk your child around the office to get them better acquainted with their surroundings and feeling more comfortable and safe there. Our staff will work with you to keep your child feeling happy and worry free throughout the appointment. Another way to expedite the appointment process and to have everything run smoothly for your benefit and for the benefit of your child, we recommend that you download the New Patient forms available on our website and have them filled out to bring to your first appointment so you do not have to spend the time completing them in our waiting room.
