When you’re looking for dental care for your child, you want to make sure they are good with children. At SommersFamilyDental, all of our dentists enjoy treating children and are qualified to give them dental care.
Fun with Sugar Grove Pediatric Dentist
We want your child to have a positive dental experience. One of the ways we do this is by explaining everything that is happening to them. We even use puppets for our younger patients. After a successful appointment, they can pick something from our prize box.
Helping with Dental Anxiety
- Don’t make a big deal out of your child’s dental appointments. Simply make it a normal part of existence. Sometimes the more you try to prepare children, the more anxious they get and begin to think it is a big deal.
- The younger they come in for their first appointment the better. When a child’s first dental experience is for a healthy checkup instead of a problem, they have a more positive outlook about going to the dentist.
- When there is a more substantial procedure that needs to be done, such as a filling or extraction, we can make the process less stressful with nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas). It is safe and will simply relax your child.
