Finding The Right Dentist For Your Child

Posted by on Apr 13, 2015 in Children & Family Dentistry, Services | 0 comments

Finding the right dentist for your child may seem like a daunting task. There are so many horror stories from neighbors, friends and family about their own children or others they know having a bad experience at the dentist office. It’s very daunting and unfortunate any child should have to go through this type of angst, but rest assured, there are dentists out there and offices where kind, gentle and loving staff members will take extra care to make sure the child has a good experience.

Tips To Find A Dentist Right For Your Child Under Ten
It helps to get a general idea of the type of dentists you have in the local area. If you look up children’s dentists online, there may be a multitude of offices. It’s hard to pick one that will be suitable for your child by just picking at random, especially if you are new to the area and don’t know a lot of people to get references from. Facebook is a great way to get recommendations from friends and associates. Put it out there on your page, asking for suggestions for local dentists and what kinds of experiences others have had. Remember to consider all answers carefully, based on their merit, and keep in mind that some people are just miserable and like to start drama.

When you look online, check out some of the local white pages for children’s dentist offices that do fun things with children under ten. For instance, a site called naturalsmiles.com has a video showing their virtual office online. A really good idea would be to watch the video first, then show it to your child before they go to the dentist so the child gets an idea of what they will be going through. This video makes it enjoyable and less scary for the child, taking away the fears of visiting the dentist. Even if they don’t go to that certain dentist office online, you can explain to your child their visit will be much like the one they see on the video. It’s a great way to alleviate fears.

Another organization is called Smile Builders. There are many of these offices in dozens of areas all over the united States. Smile Builders is a pediatric dental office but they also help to alleviate the fears for teens and children. Focusing on these two age groups can help to take away the fears of going to the dentist.

Using a professional that directs its care to the pediatric side of dentistry is the best tip of all. Get opinions from others who have been there and have your child watch the videos online. These are the best tips any parent can use when looking for a great dentist.
