Your child should start seeing a dentist when their first tooth comes though or at least by the time they are a year old. The dentist will gently examine their teeth, checking for any increased risk of cavities.
- Help keep your child relaxed by being positive about the dentist and not relaying any of your own dental anxieties.
- Talk your child though the appointment beforehand, so they’re aware of the basics to expect.
- Find a child-friendly dentist who your child likes and who you trust to look after their oral care going forward.
“If your child is old enough, you can use books or videos to help explain what will happen during the appointment so that your child isn’t apprehensive and has a better idea about what to expect. You can also play dentist at home—act out the appointment or have your child play dentist using stuffed animals!”
