Tips For Positive Dental Visits
Many children are afraid to visit the dentist. They think that the dentist is the candy police out to rid the world of candies. Letting them feel otherwise can be difficult. Hence we have listed a few tricks to make every dental visit a positive experience:
- Make appointments early in the day so your child is not tired.
- Arrive earlier than scheduled to give time for your child to take in the environment. At Mayfield Dental Care, we have toys and books to entertain your child.
- Let your child feel that dental visits are normal by making them part of your regular routine.
