Some children see a visit to the dentist as a new and exciting adventure while others might not be the happiest campers when you tell them about their appointment. Our friendly team always tries to make every dental visit into a positive one, but what can you do on your end to help encourage your child to come in and show off their smile?
Great dental health starts at home. If you teach your child about the importance of brushing and flossing each day and maintaining a healthy smile, they will be more excited about coming to the dentist, knowing they’re going to get a gold star for their hygiene record.
You are more than welcome to join your child during the exam, where they will have a dental cleaning followed by a check-up and talk with the dentist. Even if your child has excellent at-home dental hygiene, it’s important to use this opportunity to have a professional examine your child’s mouth to spot any issues that can be addressed sooner rather than later.
If your child is due for a dental exam in San Antonio, schedule their appointment with our office today.
