As a premier family dental practice in Golden Grove, Essential Dental understand that within the realms of ‘Children’s Dentistry’ building confidence in our children is something we as parents strive to do from their very first steps.
“When is it a good time to bring in my child?”
Simply, the sooner the better.
At Essential Dental, our dentists encourage parents to bring their kids into our dental practice at any age where they can sit and watch mum or dad, or their siblings, in the dental chair. This encourages curiosity and reassurance that a visit to the dentist is not something to fear. Essential Dental’s ‘spa like’ dental experience is ideal with it’s calming surrounds and relaxed atmosphere.
Our experienced dentists find that this gradual exposure helps young children to relax in the chair, and with the aid of kid’s TV, become familiar with the dental environment and sounds. We want kids to have no fear and confidently seek their next visit.
