The First Visit

It is recommended that your child visit the dentist for the first time at around the age of three.

At the first appointment, the dentist and dental hygienist will put your child at ease, examine and clean his/her teeth and review brushing and flossing techniques with you.

It is estimated that 50% of the general public is afraid of dentists. It is important for parents not to transmit this fear to their children. Information and a positive attitude will reassure your children and determine their attitude in the future. Your collaboration is important before, during and after the visit.

Before the first visit

  • Read your child one of the many books featuring a character who visits the dentist for the first time.
  • Explain what the dentist will do (count your teeth, brush your teeth)
  • Go over the steps of the visit the day before the appointment.
  • Never tell a child that going to the dentist will never hurt.

During the visit

  • You may be asked to sit in the dentist’s chair and hold your child during the examination.
  • If your child is older, you may be asked to return to the reception area once the initial contact is made.
  • Listen to the instructions and suggestions you are given on how to care for your child’s teeth.
  • Keep a positive attitude about the appointment at all times.
  • Ask for another appointment in six months.

After the visit

  • Make sure that your child brushes his/her teeth at least twice a day or after every meal.
  • Floss his/her teeth once a day.
  • Monitor what your child eats and offer foods that have a low sugar content.
  • You must monitor your childs brushing until the age of ten.
