Wichita dentist who offers pediatric dentistry describes the best way to prepare a child for their first visit

Wichita area patients who are ready to introduce their child to a dental professional are welcome to contact the practice of East Wichita Dentist to learn about the many ways in which pediatric dental care is essential to setting a proper foundation for oral health. Children who visit the dentist early and often enjoy better dental health and have a better understanding of how their smiles can be affected by poor or non-existent care. Brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist are the three most important steps to ensuring proper oral health care and enjoying the benefits of a beautiful, healthy smile for life.

When parents speak to a dentist who offers pediatric dentistry, they are often advised as to how to prepare their child for their very first dental appointment. When children come into the dental office at a very early age, it is easier for them to adjust to the environment over the years as they become familiar with the dental office and the staff who help them every time they come into the facility. It is recommended that children visit their dentist for the first time at six months, or when their very first teeth erupt through the gum line.

Preparing a child for a dental appointment will depend on their age. Very young infants or children may not require any kind of preparation, but parents should bring them in when they are well rested and fed, and not during their scheduled nap times as this can make the visit more difficult. Older children should be reassured that the visit is a positive experience and maybe even offer a reward after the dental visit for getting through the appointment. Every child is different so it is essential that parents develop a plan for preparing their child based on their specific characteristics.

At East Wichita Dentist, we are proud to offer a wide range of solutions for both parents and children and encourage parents to take this time during their child’s visit to ask any questions they may have. We want mothers and fathers to know the best methods of dental care for their little one to ensure a lifelong positive experience with oral health care.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
