Planning Your Child’s First Trip to the Dentist
Planning Your Child’s First Trip to the Dentist
November 04, 2019

Are you worried about your child’s first trip to the dentist? Feeling some stress when thinking about taking your child to the dentist is completely normal – especially if you loathe trips to the dentist yourself. But fear not! As a leading Toronto dental clinic, QQ Dental is here to answer a few frequently asked questions on what to expect and how to plan for your child’s first trip to the dentist.



When should I take my child to first see the dentist?


Experts recommend taking your child for their first trip to the dentist within the first 6 months of the first tooth eruption – or by the first year of age. The primary purpose of the first visit is preventative. Your family dentist will ensure there aren’t any issues with your child’s teeth. The dentist will also be able to provide you with information regarding baby bottle tooth decay, feeding routines and practices, mouth cleaning, teething, pacifier habits, and finger-sucking habits.



How should I prepare my child for their visit to the dentist?


The last thing you want is for your child’s first trip to the dentist to be a terrifying one. So try to stay positive – get them excited for their first trip to the dentist. If your child is pre-school age or older, it’s best to explain what to expect in a way they can understand.



How can I prepare myself for my child’s first visit to a Toronto dental clinic?


Clear any questions or concerns you may have with the dentist ahead of time. Ensure you’ve compiled your child’s health history before your child’s appointment, and inform the dentist of how your child is feeling in the event that they are scared, anxious, or apprehensive.
