How Can You Prepare Your Child to See the Dentist?
As a dentist who cares for many children, Dr. Barta and his team understand that regularly taking your child to the dentist early is the best way to ensure they are comfortable when it’s time for their next checkup. You can also help maintain a positive attitude by speaking kindly about the dentist, letting your child know why it’s a good idea to take care of their teeth, and reassuring them that everyone at The Dentist in Louisville is friendly toward kids. We will let you sit in the same room with your child if that helps make them feel safer.
We want all children to avoid anxiety about seeing the dentist so they can have healthy mouths throughout their life. Please be mindful that it is very simple for children to acquire fears from their parents. We understand many adults fear the dentist and ask that you choose your words carefully when speaking to children about the dentist to help minimize anxiety about their routine visits to see us.
