The first few visits to the dentist’s office in any child’s life can be nothing more than pure anguish. You may even remember the kicking, screaming and crying of your very own first dental appointment. At Little Heroes Pediatric Dentistry, we want to make your child’s experience one that they will look forward to and cherish for years to come. With that in mind, we’ve created a list of five amazing tips to follow to help your Little Hero overcome their fear of dental appointments.
Young Age is Best Age
It’s important to familiarize your Little Hero with the dental environment at a young age. If your child becomes familiar with his or her headquarters, their ensuing experiences will be much more fun and enjoyable.
Simplicity is Key
Your Little Hero needs to be educated about the fight against the cunning Sugarbugs, but details about their first visit is better left unsaid. Divulging too much information may lead to more questions that could eventually bring unnecessary anxiety.
No Bad Words
Shots. Pain. Hurt. The words no person wants to hear, especially our Little Heroes. Our Sidekicks will use the vocabulary and theme surrounding our dental office to put your little one at ease and make them feel comfortable about the experience and their newfound superpowers.
Visit in Advance
One of the best things you can do to keep your Little Hero at ease is to pay a visit to our dentist’s office before the actual appointment. This will help them familiarize with the environment and lose any sense of fear. At Little Heroes Pediatric Dentistry, your Little Hero can begin gearing up for an action-packed adventure against the Sugarbugs with the help of his or her Sidekicks.
Fussing May Just Happen
Chances are your child may wiggle, cry, and whine at the sight of anything dentist-related, but it’s something we’re completely prepared for. At Little Heroes, we help calm your little one’s nerves with the use of our super theme. Our super tools and power chambers will make your children feel like the Little Heroes they are and allow them a chance to stop their fussing.
