Preparing for your Child’s Dental Visit
Apart from your child’s dental examination, the purpose of the first visit is to learn about your child’s oral health and how to best care for your child’s unique needs before any problems occur.
The dental office is a new environment for your child and it is normal for a child to fuss during parts or the duration of the dental visit. However, parents may be surprised at how accepting a child can be when the dentist examines them.
It is important that you and your child feel comfortable. Please do not hesitate to bring up any questions or concerns that you may have.
Edgemont Dental Care has prepared a two-page pamphlet called “Your Child’s Dental Health” which answers these common questions. An enlarged version of the Primary Tooth Development chart is also available.
