Your Child’s Happy Dental Journey Begins Now. Contact Your Local Dentist And Check Your Child In For Their First Appointment!

At Hills Dental Design, we always look forward to welcoming children for their first dental appointment. We want to make sure we can establish friendly friendships with your child so that they feel happy, comfortable and relaxed during their appointment.

As a child, the first visit to the dentist can be frightening because they don’t know what to expect. We at Hills Dental Design want to ensure their first experience is a memorable one, along with making sure they are developing healthy smiles as they grow. Young smiles are infectious and contagious, and we want it to stay that way.

It is important that children adopt positive oral habits and regularly brush their teeth twice a day. As a child, we all loved eating sugary treats to stay happy. However, it is important that children are educated at a young age about the dangers of poor oral hygiene. When your child visits the dentist, they will be advised on why looking after their teeth is so important. With regular dental visits and education, we pledge that your child will look forward to future dental visits and understand the need in looking after their teeth

Here are some of the benefits in visiting the dentist:

Early check-ups are important to limit any chance of cavity or decay forming. This could lead to severe health issues in future, causing your child’s teeth to become damaged too early in their lives.

What Should You Expect On Your Child’s First Appointment?

For your child’s first appointment, we have all the necessary equipment available to ensure the overall setting of the appointment favours your child. The dental room can be transferred into a kid’s setting so that they can feel happy and relaxed. Here’s what else you should expect in your child’s first appointment:

Regular Check-Ups and Medical Checks

It is recommended that you book your child into visit the dentist every six months. This is to simply make sure your child’s teeth are developing healthily and mouth remains strong.

Regular Dietary Advice

Children always enjoy sugary treats from time to time. However, as a parent, it is important that these are eaten in moderation. Constant chewing on sugary snacks can lead to decay and cavity. Keep it balanced.

Education on good oral hygiene

Children need to be made aware as to why looking after their teeth is important. Expect the friendly dentist to speak to your child to help them understand the benefits of strong teeth.

Keeping teeth healthy at home

Keep the experience of brushing teeth fun. Use creative games or sticker charts to help monitor their progress and reward them with a gift or a treat if they are looking after their teeth well.
