How to Get Ready for a Kids First Dentist Visit in Greensboro

Parents in Greensboro, your kid’s first dentist visit does not have to feel daunting. This appointment can go well, and if it doesn’t, that is not a problem. Dr. Sona Isharani understands that a kid’s first dental care visit can be scary for some kids while others coast right through. Each child is different and reacts in his or her own way. You can help your child prepare for their first dental appointment to better the chances of a smooth visit. We have put together a few suggestions to help you get started.

How to Get Ready for a Kids First Dentist Visit in Greensboro Area

Spend Time Brushing Their Teeth

You will want your child to get used to having a toothbrush in their mouth, along with someone else’s hands. Spend a few minutes twice a day brushing your child’s teeth. You can make this a positive, fun experience, something they look forward to. It could be a special mommy or daddy time. The best way to do this is to have your child lie on their back with their head in your lap and gently brush their teeth and gums. Other tips include:

  • Use a clean, damp cloth to clean gums before teeth come in
  • Use a small, soft-bristled brush when the teeth start coming in
  • Use a small quantity of toothpaste (the size of a grain of rice)
  • Sing or talk to your child during this time

Take Them to Your Next Cleaning

When you take your child to the dentist with you, they quickly get used to the idea. Bring another adult along and tag team the little one, explaining what is happening and that they will get a turn someday, too. Have them take a look at the tools the hygienist uses. You could even splurge on a toy dentist kit (Playdough has one) to reinforce the visit and pair it with something positive.

Took my 2 year old in for his first appointment. I had a very good experience. The people on staff are friendly and easy to talk to. My kid was able to be his usual lively self. This helped me while I talked with Dr. Isharani and her assistant. They pulled up his favorite TV show on YouTube while they explained his dental care needs at this age. Also had little car toys and rattles. This is a super warm and professional practice. I would definitely recommend it. I came out learning how to better assist my kid’s oral hygiene. And my kid was able to enjoy himself!
