Good oral health starts at home. Your role as parents is crucial in helping your little ones develop a lifetime of healthy smiles.
Here at Southdown Dental in Mississauga, we’re always happy to work with parents in caring for your family’s oral health.
Our dental team loves working with children. Your child’s first impression of the dental office should be a pleasant one. That’s why we strive to give them a fun, relaxed start.
The first visit will be an introduction to the dental office. Your little one will learn about dental equipment used during treatments and meet everyone too.
We’ll show how things are done and let your child know what we will be doing using a language they’d understand. If there are treatments to be done, rest assured we’ll use a gentle touch.
If your little one is uncomfortable and feels anxious about being at the dental office, we’ll have you assist us during the visit. We won’t force your child to do anything if he’s scared.
With your help, we’ll be working first on winning the trust of the young patient. It’s important for children to see dentist appointments as a positive experience so they’ll look forward to it.
Benefits of Regular Dental Care for Kids
The Canadian Dental Association recommends that kids be taken to the dentist for an assessment 6 months after their first tooth comes in. It’s never too late, though, to get your kids started on a lifetime of good dental care.
