How do you get your child ready for a visit to the dentist? While major preparations aren’t necessary, there are a few things you may want to consider before you visit The Super Dentists, the #1 San Diego pediatric dentistry, orthodontics and parent dentistry practice.
How to Prepare Your Child for a Dentist Appointment
Here are a few things to know before you go to your child’s next visit to the dentist. Speaking of dental visits, The Super Dentists strives to ensure every dental experience is as extraordinary as your child. That’s just one reason why 1 in every 5 kids in San Diego is a Super Dentists kid!
Here are a few tips on what to do before going to the dentist:
Has your child been brushing two times a day and flossing once per day? Yes, bravo for helping your child establish a good oral health routine early on. They’ll have nothing to worry about at the dentist if they’re already taking care of their teeth. If they haven’t been keeping to a daily schedule of brushing and flossing, and we know it’s tough, let your hygienist or dentist know, they may be able to recommend strategies to help. Before going to the dentist (not just the day before, but weeks or months before), brush and floss at least twice per day. Bonus points for getting in an occasional lunchtime brush!
Clear Your Schedule
Want to know the best way to prepare for your dentist appointment? Get your schedule buttoned up, and you’re halfway there! Kids are unpredictable, there may be traffic and worrying about being late can add stress. That’s why The Super Dentists offers early morning and late evening appointments, as well as some Saturday appointments, so you can come when you aren’t in a rush. The Super Dentists is open on most school holidays in case you want to squeeze in an appointment while they’re not in school.
Getting in the Right Mindset
Did you know you can pass on the fear of going to the dentist to your child? We know dental visits can cause anxiety in some patients. If that’s the case, please let us know that when you schedule your appointment. You can always bring your child into the office so they know where they’ll be going. We have fun activities in our Super lounges. Lots of times, kids don’t want to leave! During the appointment, you can ask what the dental assistant is doing or ask them to explain it to your child. Knowing what’s going to happen next is sometimes all a child needs to relax. Can you do something fun after the appointment, so your child will learn to make positive associations with going to the dentist.
