For many kids, a trip to the dentist can be a little scary. Try these tips to help kids relax and feel more comfortable in the dentist’s chair.
- Start them young. The earlier they start going to the dentist, the more normal it feels to them.
- Stay positive. When preparing for a visit to the dentist, be honest and upbeat without giving them false hopes.
- Try a make-believe visit. Role-playing can give kids a fun, safe preview of what they can expect from a real visit.
