Being a parent of 2 kids herself, Dr. Anderson is well acquainted with the limited attention spans of the little ones, and she aims to help alleviate any fear or anxiety they may have during their visits. Our goal is to build trust and set positive tone for each appointment while making the visits fun and informative.
Parents often wonder what to say about the dental visits. It’s best to treat a dental visit as casual as possible. Often times, the less said the better. Try to make the appointment days easy, making sure your child is well rested and fed. Don’t let your child be aware of any anxiety you may have about dental visits. Furthermore, don’t bribe your child to go to the dentist, or threaten a visit as punishment. This could result in lifelong negative attitudes about dental visits
Research has shown that the placement of pit and fissure sealants has dramatically reduced the incidence of dental decay in children.
If your child is involved in active sports such as hockey, baseball, soccer or football, a protective mouth guard is recommended.
As children grow and develop, so do their teeth, requiring differing levels of care as they age. We have outlined the different stages of tooth development.
