Do you have apprehensions
about taking your child to the
dentist for his or her first checkup?
Could that be one of the
reasons why you haven't made
that first important appointment?
Well, your child's first visit to
the dentist does not have to be
for a check-up. There's no reason
why it can't be a social visit
just to "get acquainted."
If your youngster hasn't been
to the dentist yet, the next time
you have an appointment take
Let him watch the
dentist check your teeth, clean
them, etc. There's no better
way for a child to understand
that dental care is important for
your health and good looks.
Believe me, the worst first dental
experience is an emergency
visit for a toothache or accidentcaused
injury. Extensive treatment
or repair on a first visit
may set your child up for a
chain of future needless anxieties.
Don't avoid your child's first
The sooner your youngster
creates a confident relationship
with the dentist, the
better, start with a preview.

promoting a better dental health
