Introducing Children to a Dentist in Edgeware

03 / 05 / 2023

Taking your child to the dentist for the first time can be a daunting experience for both of you. But by being prepared and understanding what to expect, you can help your child have a positive experience and develop a healthy relationship with their dentist in Edgeware

The first step is to choose a dental practice that is experienced in treating children. You can ask your friends, family, or medical professionals for recommendations. Once you have a few names, be sure to call each office and ask about their policies and procedures for children.

When you visit the practice for the first time, be sure to bring your child along. This will help them get used to the office and the staff before they have to have any treatment.

At Manor Lodge, our aim is to help every parent help their children to understand the need to take care of their teeth and gums by brushing them every day and gaining professional advice and help when needed. This will help your children to grow up with strong and healthy teeth that they will have for their entire life.

Preparing Your Child

It’s important to talk to your child about what to expect at the dentist in Edgeware. Explain that the dental professional will be checking their teeth and gums and that they may need to have a cleaning or filling. Be sure to answer any questions your child has honestly and in a way they can understand.

You can also help your child prepare by reading books or watching videos about going to the dental office. This can help them get used to the idea and make them feel more comfortable.

The Visit

On the day of the visit, be sure to arrive on time. This will help reduce your child’s anxiety and make the visit go more smoothly.

When you arrive at the dental practice, be sure to introduce your child to the staff. This will help them feel more comfortable and familiar with the people who will be taking care of them.

During the visit, be sure to stay with your child and offer them support. If they start to feel anxious, let them know that it’s okay to be scared and that you’re there for them.

After the visit, be sure to praise your child for being brave. This will help them feel good about themselves and make them more likely to want to return to the dental practice in the future.

A question of age

We know that one question that many parents struggle with when trying to know when to introduce their children to a dentist in Edgeware is at what age should they do so? Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this as it very much depends on the individual child and what stage they are at in their development.

The best advice we can offer you around the subject of introducing your child to the dental practice is to trust your own judgement; you know your child the best and this will help you to gauge when they are potentially ready to make their first visit. Also remember, we are a phone call away should you require any advice or have any questions, we are always willing to help when we can.

Established for more than 50 years, we pride ourselves on being a caring and friendly team.
