Here at the Midtown Dental Group, we go out of our way to make sure every child visiting our dental office enjoys the happy dental visit as much as possible.
Our office has specifically been designed to appeal to our young client with lots of child oriented images on the walls and a whole wealth of toys to keep them entertained in the waiting area.
If you remember visiting an adult dentist when you were young and feeling overwhelmed at the experience, then you’ll appreciate the dramatically different treatment a child will receive in a child oriented pediatric dental office.
How We Can Help You to Get Happy Dental Visit
We do strongly suggest that children visit Dr. Amy Lustbader or another of our great pediatric dentists as soon as they get their first tooth or by age one.
We are all very gentle with children but this first dental visit is important as we will want to ensure their teeth and jaws are forming correctly and that there are no signs of problems. It is a great opportunity for a young child to get used to happy dental visit a brand new environment and to become accustomed to all the new sights and smells.
We also welcome the chance to get to know new parents and we can offer lots of advice on home dental care if required.
Visiting Our Dental Office with an Older Child
If you have an older child and are visiting our dental office for the first time, then we will make sure your kid feels relaxed as possible and have happy dental visit, particularly if they are nervous or have experienced dental problems in the past.
If your child does feel nervous then it is worth letting us know beforehand so we can take extra special care of them. We may also suggest additional kids sedation dentistry if they require any treatment.
As a caregiver or parent, you can help by ensuring you speak about dental visits in a positive light, no matter your own experiences of dental care. We know lots of adults struggle with seeing a dentist and can inadvertently pass on this problem to their children through letting them see their own fears and odontophobia about dental care.
How We Can Help With Oral Care at Home
Would you like to know how to clean your child’s teeth effectively and without any struggles? We can help you. Our friendly dental team can also offer advice on your child’s diet and how best to keep their teeth healthy and strong with good preventative dentistry.
If your kid is older we can teach them how to brush and floss effectively in a way that is fun and informative so they can develop good oral care habits that will last, we hope, for life.
We know good dental care begins young and it doesn’t need to be complicated or scary. By brining your child to visit our dental office, you will be giving them the happy dental visit and chance of enjoying healthy teeth for life and without any fears or phobias.
