Pediatric Dentistry Helping Children Have Fun
In part one of this series our Edmond dentist talked about how choosing the right dentist can make a big difference for children to feel comfortable receiving dental care. We also touched on one way to make your child feel good about their good dental hygiene progress with a sticker chart. Today, our Edmond dentist is going to list 2 more ideas that can help you make pediatric dentistry visits more enjoyable for your little ones.
As we absolutely love making children and parents realize that coming to the dentist doesn’t have to be so bad, here are 2 more ideas to allow your children to have fun with dentistry.
1.) Allow For Fun Costume Wearing: What could make a visit to the dentist feel like the most fun event possible? Wearing a superhero or princess costume, of course! Consider letting your little ones get creative with their dentist office outfits to make visiting the dentist a blast. They’ll always look forward to tossing on that cape or princess dress when the next check-up comes around!
2.) Plan A Fun Outing Reward: For children that may be beyond the “sticker chart” phase you could take positive reinforcement a step further and offer up a fun outing as reward for your child’s hard work in maintaining great oral hygiene. Fun trips to a museum, indoor play areas, or a trip to the movies could spark interest in your children to brush and floss according to plan!
We know some parents aren’t fans of the dentist, themselves, but that can be changed! In time you will see that our office isn’t like most. We love pediatric dentistry and taking care of the whole family. We’d also love the opportunity to make you and your children feel more comfortable about visiting our family-friendly Edmond dentist.
