Your Child's First Visit to the Dentist
From making their first visit fun and exciting to caring for babies, kicking the thumb-sucking habit, sports guards, sealants, space maintainers – Hall Dental can help with your children's unique dental needs.
The First Visit
Children's first visits to the dentist can have an enormous impact on how they view visiting the dentist throughout the rest of their lives. At Hall Dental in Lethbridge, our team loves working with children, and we always do our level best to make sure their initial visits with us are positive experiences.
This can go a long way in ensuring that children don't have negative associations with the dentist, and don't avoid undergoing treatment out of fear and anxiety as adults.
Talking to Children About Visiting the Dentist
When it comes to talking to kids about visiting the dentist, less is more!
Too much information can overwhelm children, so just keep it simple and straightforward.
Here's what we recommend you tell your child before visiting the dentist:
- They'll count your teeth
- They'll brush your teeth
- The dentist is going to take a look
- We only visit a few times a year
