What can you do to make sure my child is comfortable during dental visits?
We know that a child’s first visit to the dentist can be an intimidating experience. They’re not yet familiar with the people or surroundings, and seeing all that scary dental equipment can make them worry about what comes next.
Drs. Sanati and Shahram have extensive experience in dealing with children and their unique personalities. Our goal is to introduce your child to dentistry slowly and gently, so that they do not become overwhelmed before we even begin treatment.
We encourage you to be in the exam room with their children, because we know that it’s important for kids to be able to see mom or dad to know that they really are safe. In fact, depending on how your child reacts, it may be better for toddlers to sit on your lap during the initial visits. Since children learn from their parents, we can even do an “exam” on your teeth so your child can see that it’s nothing to be afraid of.
