At FMS, our team of Pediatric Dentists are experienced in providing comfort and empathy to the child. Our Pediatric Dentists have received extensive training in Child Psychology and our dental offices are designed in a way that is most comfortable and encouraging to the child and parents which helps prepare the child for positive dental visits. It is not just our dentists, our support team right from the front desk staff to the assistants are also well- trained in making the child feel comfortable at our office and they also use games, cartoons to keep the child engaged and entertained thereby creating a positive environment overall.
Explain what is happening. Knowing what to expect from the first dental visit can greatly reduce dentist-related anxiety in children. You can help your child manage expectations and make dental visits fun.
The pediatric dentist, the child and the parents need to become well-acquainted and develop a healthy, fun relationship. The dentist will evaluate the health of the existing teeth and gums and plan the necessary treatment or educate the parents regarding the oral hygiene maintenance . The dentist will also assess tooth and jaw development to learn about the child’s overall health history. Finally, the dentist will answer related questions and educate the parents about how to develop and carry out an appropriate oral care routine or emphasize on continuing the existing oral health routine.
