Dentist… or Boogieman?
The dentist can sometimes strike a general fear in even the most composed adult’s heart. So you can imagine why a child may feel even more nervous when it comes to visiting the dentist.
Excellence in Dentistry in Wickham Terrace, Brisbane, believes in starting excellent oral health care early in a patient’s life. For this reason we offer compassionate children’s dentistry care to ensure your child has the best chance for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
In offering the full spectrum of children’s dental treatments, our team is also dedicated to helping children feel relaxed and comfortable while in the dental chair.
So what is it about visiting the dentist that makes people so nervous?
Our dental professionals are committed to changing the way our patients, especially our littlest patients, feel about visiting our dental practice. For adults and children alike often it is the perception of pain which scares people about going to the dentist, rather than actually attending their appointment.
The reality is – if teeth are taken care of from a young age by following a stringent oral hygiene and regularly visiting the dentist, there will often be nothing at all to fear. Despite this, for children it can also be fear of the unknown that makes them anxious.
This is why at Excellence in Dentistry we are dedicated to making the very best first impression possible. As soon as your child arrives at our practice for the first time our team will be dedicated to helping them feel relaxed and at ease. Your child’s first visit is as special to us as yours and together parents and dentists alike can make sure they grow up with strong, healthy teeth that they can keep for life.
Our dental professionals recommend that you bring your child to the dentist after their first tooth erupts in order for our team to make sure that their smile is on the right track. We aim to become an important partner in your child’s dental health and hope to establish a long-lasting relationship with your child, based on trust, mutual respect and compassion.
