Your child may be slightly apprehensive about visiting our pediatric dentists in San Diego, but once the child arrives in our office we have many ways to help them feel comfortable during their visit. Their visit will start in the waiting room, where we have fun toys and games available to enjoy while they are waiting for the appointment to start.
We understand that it can be a scary experience to have unfamiliar objects put in their mouth, so we have techniques to make the dental procedures a game for the children. For example, when your child visits our pediatric dentists in San Diego, they don’t hear about the water syringe or the suction tube… instead, we make it fun by talking about how the water gun can spray the child’s teeth and Mr. Thirsty wants to drink the water up.
As we discuss dental health with your child, we will explain things in simple terms so that they understand the importance of caring for their teeth. We will talk with them about how brushing and flossing is good to keep their teeth healthy, and the child will learn in language that they can understand.
