Planning Your Child's First Dental Appointment? Let's Get Excited!
There are many milestones in a child’s life and visiting the dentist for the first time is one of them. We recommend seeing your child for the first time as soon as their first tooth erupts. The earlier a child sees the dentist, the more likely they are to take good care of their oral health for the rest of their lives.
If you are looking for caring, compassionate children’s dentistry in Tacoma, WA, look no further than Tranquility Wellness Dental. We love treating kids, and we are experienced in making sure their time with us is as enjoyable as possible. We want nothing more than to make them excited about visiting the dentist to establish good habits that last a lifetime.
Talk to Your Child Beforehand
It’s always best to let your child know beforehand about an impending trip to the dentist. Talk to them in an age-appropriate way to explain that there is nothing to fear at the dentist. If you have anxiety about the dentist yourself, do your best to keep those feelings from showing.
Let your child know what to expect with their first visit to the dentist. It’s not a bad idea to let them tag along with you when you see the dentist just so they can see that there is nothing to worry about.
