Make going to the dentist a habit for your children early on.
Establishing a good dental relationship early on in a child’s life can determine whether they have good dental hygiene and habits that will continue with them into adulthood. Choosing a children’s dentistry office that is comfortable for both you and your child is a must. It is recommended that children visit a dentist early on in their lives, even as early as their first year, if for no other reason than to make the experience of going to the dentist something familiar to your child.
What We Offer
At Amberwood Dental Centre, we offer children’s dentistry to residents of Newmarket, Ontario and surrounding areas. We understand that visiting a dentist may be something that causes your child fear or uncertainty, so our staff will work extra hard to make sure they feel comfortable and welcome in our office. We have a children’s play area, so you can bring the children to their appointments and let them play first, allowing them time to acclimate to the office before we take them back for their check-up. We want to set a comfortable tone with your child that will influence their future dental health.
Preparing Your Children for a Trip to Our Office
Even though children’s dentistry is one of our specialties, we realize your children may still be hesitant to take a trip to the dentist. To acclimate them to the idea of receiving dental care before their arrival, we recommend doing the following:
- Simply talking about what will happen at the dentist can go a long way in making a trip to our children’s dentistry office a good experience. Sit down with your children a few days before and let them know about what will happen when you bring them to our office.
- Even though filling cavities is a painless experience for most children, many can still struggle with it. To prevent cavities, make sure you’re brushing and flossing your children’s teeth, or helping them take care of these tasks if they’re older.
- You should also make an effort to bring your children to our office for routine dental check-ups on a routine basis. This will help them feel more at ease with going to the dentist, especially as the process becomes more familiar.
Don’t hesitate to let us know if your children have struggled with going to the dentist in the past. Our role is to make the experience a positive one with our friendly environment and compassionate staff members. Ultimately, we want to make coming to the dentist a lifelong habit, and that starts with regular trips to our dental office!
Schedule Your Appointment Today
We offer weekend and evening hours, as well as emergency services in children’s dentistry, since kids have busy after-school schedules and don’t always choose the best times of day to get hurt and need a tooth checked. Children’s dentistry is important to us, and we work hard to make sure our youngest patients feel as important and included as our other patients. We will take the time to answer questions– both yours and theirs! Contact us today at Amberwood Dental Centre for a children’s dentistry appointment.
