Finding a Dentist for Your Kid
A quick Google search or a few phone calls may be all you need to find an office that makes the dentist fun for your kid. But if you still feel stumped, start by talking to your friends and relatives. Ask where they take their kids if they've had a positive experience with the dentist and staff, and whether their kids like going there.
Once you've narrowed down your options, schedule some office tours. With a visit, you can gauge the friendliness and warmth of the doctor, dental hygienists, and office staff, as well as check out the waiting room and treatment rooms. This will also allow you an opportunity to pose any questions before making an appointment.
Your child's earliest dental appointments should be fun and easy-going to set them up for a lifetime of proper oral care. You can take steps to prepare your child for their first appointment and find the right dentist to make the whole experience enjoyable for both you and your child.
