Could Your Child Have More Fun at the Dentist if They Saw You Go to Yours?

Posted on 6/15/2018 by Lindsey A. Robinson DDS Office
Child Dentist Lindsey A. Robinson DDS Pediatric and Endodontic Dentistry CA 95945-7224I'm sure you've heard the phrase ‘Do as I say, not as I do' and you know, that's not exactly how life works. Children learn by example, this is true, what better way to ease the stress of taking your child to the dentist than to go yourself and lead by example?

While we're not suggesting that you take your toddler with you while you're scheduled for a root canal, taking a child along while you go to your regularly scheduled cleaning can be beneficial.

Leading By Example

Good oral hygiene starts early, and it starts at home. Brushing your teeth twice a day with your child, flossing and having fun are all things you can do to ensure that your child's visits to the dentist are relatively stress free.

But how about partnering up with another parent and taking the kids on a field trip to watch Mom get her teeth cleaned? Leading by example is an extremely effective way to show your child that there's nothing to fear from going to the dentist.

If your child is still hesitant and fearful, try a little role playing at home. Gather the gear you need to make a home dentist office and play! We'd be happy to supply you with gloves, a mask and even some extras to help you set up your play station at home. Children learn through example, and they learn through play.

Give us a call today! Our compassionate and fun staff would be happy to set up a little tour of our facility and help you teach your child good oral hygiene from the start! We would be happy to schedule both parents' cleanings back to back; one can have a cleaning while the other is with your child observing the process. We're looking forward to partnering with you and providing good dental health to your entire family!
