Choosing a Good Pediatric Dentist
Your choice of pediatric dentist can make a huge difference. When you visit the Kids Dentistry Center you’ll immediately notice our dental office is extremely child oriented. The waiting room is full of kid’s toys and lots of things to keep them occupied while waiting to see the dentist. All of our pediatric dentists are extremely good, but Dr. Marina Krepkh is particularly gentle with nervous children and can quickly help put them at their ease as she is excellent at relating to them. Pediatric dentists are very good at explaining things to young children in a way that’s easy for them to understand so they feel comfortable receiving treatment. If your child doesn’t feel comfortable during the pediatric dental visit with one particular dentist or cannot relate to them, you can always ask for them to see another dentist. It is important that they like their dentist.
Be a Good Role Model for Your Child
When talking about a pediatric dental visit, make sure you only use positive terms. If you think it will help, you could even try taking your child with you to your dentist so they can see what happens during a routine exam. Afterwards talk about how nice it feels to have professionally cleaned teeth and how great it is to have good dental health. At home, make sure you brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss once a day. You could even try brushing and flossing at the same time as your child so they can see how you do it and can develop their own routine.
