As a parent, you can take an active role in preparing your child to visit a kids dentist in San Diego, such as Children’s Dentistry of San Diego. Helping your child brush and floss their teeth on a regular basis can help them have good dental health so they have an easy dental appointment.
Additionally, you can play games with the child to help them get comfortable with other people looking at their teeth. In our office, the kids dentist in San Diego will play games with the child such as counting their teeth or creating a game out of the treatment. You can play similar games with your child by counting their teeth, or allowing the child to count your teeth.
At home, “playing dentist” can be a great way to help your child be more open to allowing the dentist to look at their teeth when they go to their actual appointment. Talk with the child in positive terms about the dentist visit, to help them have good feelings associated with their upcoming appointment.
At Children’s Dentistry of San Diego, we can help your child to have a good experience. Call us today at (858) 536-1111
