Parents or guardians can help to make their dental health experience by talking to the child about going to the dentist and why it is important.and what to expect. Keeping in mind to avoid words or phrases that may cause unnecessary anxiety.
Role Models for Health
Many adults attribute their good dental habits to their parent’s guidance and diligence. It is a team effort that starts in the home and is supported by your pediatric dental provider.
Your child should visit the dentist soon after their first teeth usually begin to appear (erupt) around six to eight months of age.
