I don’t think my child will cooperate. Should we still come in?
If you think your child will have a difficult time cooperating, it is a great time for you to come in! We would rather meet your little one several times for happy check-ups so that your child gets to know our office and builds trust with our team. This way, if your child is ever in need of dental treatment or has an emergency, cooperation will be easier because they will have established a level of trust with us.
For children who are inherently anxious, regular dental visits are even more important. If we can see your child regularly for cleanings and check-ups, we can help keep your child's teeth healthy. Healthy teeth mean fewer appointments, less invasive treatment, fewer missed days of school, no dental pain, and less anxiety about the dentist!
