First Dental Visit
If you haven’t brought your child to their first dental visit, start today!
It is important to look after your child’s teeth right from the first baby tooth. All children should start their first dental visit around the age of 2. If you haven’t already done so, it’s not too late to start.
We aim to make your child’s first dental visit a positive and enjoyable one. Prior to the visit, we encourage all parents to prepare their child by role-playing or reading children’s dental books to get them excited. Avoid expressing any fears you may have as this can create a negative impression of the dental visit, which can be very difficult to overcome later on in life.
Our professionally trained team like to keep the first dental visit as simple as possible. This usually involves counting the teeth and making sure all teeth are in good condition. The main goal is to introduce dentistry to your child and develop trust and confidence in them. As this is an entirely new experience, do not worry if your child is not keen to participate. Sometimes it may take a couple of visits before your child is comfortable.
You may want to schedule your child’s dental appointment together with the rest of the family to make this a routine event rather than a special occasion.
