We know you want the best for your family, so as a NE Calgary family dentist, we make education a priority. We all want your child to develop good brushing and flossing habits that will last them a lifetime, and you want their teeth and gums to stay healthy. Let’s work together to keep your child's smile at its best.
To ensure your family has a positive experience at the dentist, children can play games on our Playstation game consoles or watch television in our playroom just off of our lobby. There are books to read and toys to play with, too, to help our small patients feel comfortable in our office.
Here are some ways you can help your child develop a healthy relationship with dental care:
Explain to your child why brushing and flossing is important in keeping your teeth strong and healthy. Talk about how sugar can stick to your teeth if it isn’t brushed away.
Make it a family affair. Demonstrate to your kids what proper brushing and flossing technique looks like, and help them learn to do it themselves.
Be positive and calm during conversations about dental visits, even if you're not a fan of coming to the dentist. Keep all comments relaxed in front of your child. They need to see that going to the dentist is nothing to fear or stress about.
Visit the Kids Zone on our website, which includes videos, games and colouring pages that are exciting and interactive to educate our young patients about the basics of dental hygiene. It's all about keeping it fun and cheerful.
