Last but not least, teach your children that the dentist is a fun place to be! Even if you’ve had bad experiences, it is important to help our children have good experiences by being positive about what we do here! There won’t be any surprises. We tell the child each step, and we do each step like we described. We know just one bad dental experience can lead to a lifetime of dental anxiety, so we try hard to make sure that all of our patient’s visits are stress-free so everyone can enjoy a life-time of healthy smiles!
