Developing Good Habits Early
Your child’s dental habits are no joking matter. Remember, you are the example for shaping your child’s future dental habits. Here at Pediatric Dentistry of Pleasant Hill, we can help you and your child in developing a lifetime of healthy dental habits!
Healthy Dental Habits
- Schedule a specific time, morning and night, where your child can care for their teeth. Teaching proper brushing and flossing techniques at an early age will help them learn the benefits of caring for their teeth. Instilling good habits now will help them to avoid prolonged and possibly uncomfortable dental visits in the future! Pediatric Dentistry of Pleasant Hill will help provide you with the most up-to-date techniques and information to teach your children the basics!
- Be a positive role model for your child on their dental visits! Kids pick up on mixed messages quickly. Be honest with yourself about YOUR feelings for visiting the dentist. Let Pediatric Dentistry of Pleasant Hill make your child’s first visit be fun for everyone!
- Its important for parents to support the dentist as the authoritative figure in their relationship. The sooner they learn to be comfortable with visiting the dentist, the sooner, you, the parent will feel comfortable too! At Pediatric Dentistry of Pleasant Hill you will find our office to be a pleasant and caring environment. We know a positive experience can set the tone for your child’s future dental health.
