What can you do to make my child’s dental visits easier?
We know that, from a child’s perspective, a visit to the dentist can be a pretty overwhelming event. They’re in a strange place with people they don’t know, surrounded by equipment that is scary just to look at.
But at Summit Dental, we take extra care with your child, because we don’t believe that a dental visit needs to be anything less than a positive, fun experience. There are already too many children and adults who did not get off to a good start with their dental care.
Making Your Child Comfortable
Our professional team will make your child feel special and welcome from the moment they arrive. We think it’s a good idea for you to bring your child in for a quick visit, just to see the office and meet our friendly staff. This way, when they’re ready for their first “official” visit, they’re at least familiar with the setting.
We always start your child’s visits off in a very conservative manner. During the first visit, we will just let your child sit in the dental chair or in your lap if they’re more comfortable. We can do a “pretend” exam of your teeth so they see there’s nothing to be afraid of.
At this point, they should be familiar with us and the surroundings. We go out of our way to make these visits fun, because a positive start leads to a lifetime of excellent oral health care. Please contact our Dillon dental office for more information about your child's first visit.
