Tips on Helping Your Child Have a Good Dental Visit

Posted .

Dr. Nidal Obeid and our dental team want your child to have a positive and successful dental appointment when they come to Family Dental of Roscoe. However, we can’t make that possible on our own—we need your help. There are things you can do to help your child feel calm and comfortable in the dental chair.

First, you can use positive words when talking about the dental office, dental treatments, and dental team. This helps your child feel calm and comfortable during their visit. There is no need to talk about pain, needles, and discomfort.

Second, help your child by being a presence but not a nuisance. This means you can sit next to your child, hold their hand, and keep them calm, but it’s best to avoid interjecting and making it hard for our dental team to create a strong and positive relationship with your child. Plus, hearing multiple voices as well as feeling a stressful environment confuses your child and makes them uncomfortable.
