Planning Your First Just For Kids Dentist Appointment

shutterstock_153764189-300x200As a just for kids dentist, we have learned that among the most important visits a child will remember, the top is the first dental appointment. What makes the first just for kids dentist visit so important? It is the experience a child has during the first dental visit they remember that will often set the tone for how they perceive the dentist and whether or not they want to go back for the rest of their life. In a recent study of people who do not visit the dentist regularly (45 percent of American adults fall into this category), a large number could relate their aversion to the dentist office with an experience they had as a child.

A Just for Kids’ Dentist Can Be Your Partner in Oral Health

just-for-kids-dentist-300x281As a just for kids’ dentist, we are in a unique position that is at once rewarding and also has significant challenges.
