When is the best time to take a child to the dentist?
All parents should take their children to the dentist for the first time when they have no problems or pain in their mouth. When the children are familiar with the dentist, the doctor’s office, the chair, and the instruments, they are much more relaxed and willing to cooperate when they need to visit the dentist for an intervention.
It is necessary for parents to lead by example and show their children how to behave in the workplace. Because children scan their parents’ grimaces and can associate them with pleasant and unpleasant feelings, it is preferable for a child to be taken when a parent has a painless intervention.
