3 Things To Try To Avoid (So You Enjoy Visits)

It’s possible that your child has absolutely no qualms whatsoever about coming in for a dental checkup with us, which is absolutely wonderful! However, we often notice that it’s sometimes Mom or Dad who isn’t having a very relaxing experience. We know that bringing your child in for pediatric dental care at our Dallas, TX practice can be something that puts you a bit on edge. You want your child to feel good all the time but if you have had not-so-lovely personal experiences with dentistry, this can make visits a little rough on you! Let us help you feel better, so the whole family shows up and leaves smiling.

#1: Avoid Feeling Too Embarrassed To Ask Questions

We know that the longer you wait to ask a question at our practice when your child is receiving a dental checkup, the harder it can become to just open your mouth and ask it! You may feel like you missed your opportunity or worry that we are going to look at you in disbelief if you ask something quite simple. Try to avoid feeling embarrassed or worried! We are always happy to take time during and at the end of the visit to offer additional information. Ask us anything about your child’s smile!

#2: Avoid Reliving Your Childhood Experiences (Unless They Were Amazing)

Did you have amazing experiences with dental care as a little one? If so, then we are pleased. If not, we know that you may find yourself feeling a little anxious about protecting your kiddo. We encourage you to try very hard to leave those memories behind you, as you simply let your child experience dental checkups as something brand new. We promise we will be gentle, kind, and that your child’s smile is in wonderful hands.

#3: Avoid Worrying About Problems

Yes, we know. Our team understands that you’re just protective of your child’s smile and you really don’t want your son or daughter to experience anything negative, even a tiny cavity! This is why it’s good that you schedule checkups two times a year. It allows us to find changes right away. So, even if something has happened (like the previously mentioned minor tooth decay), we can treat it and your child can forget all about it! Keep in mind that we offer extremely gentle pediatric dental care and nearly every treatment you could hope for, so you actually don’t need to worry about anything!
