Your child and the dentist in Erskineville – prepare for their first visit

Taking your child to the dentist for the first time can be a stressful experience but it doesn’t have to be that way. Just like adults, children may be cautious with the dentist at first, but if there are many things you can do to ensure that things will go smoothly.


At Healthy Smile Centre, we want to provide your child with the best dental care possible within a relaxing and stress-free environment. Moreover, we believe that children should visit the dentist in Erskineville from a young age in order to familiarise themselves with the importance of oral health.


Unlike adults, children are not automatically prejudiced when it comes to dental care and it is our job to ensure they stay that way. Our dentist in Erskineville will do their best to make your child feel as comfortable as possible in the dentist’s chair. As a parent, there are also things you can do to make this experience as positive as possible for your child.


Is there a right age for my child’s first dental check-up?


Parents are often uncertain about when to bring their child to the dentist for the first time. It is generally recommended to seek dental care as soon as your child has their first tooth or around their first birthday. This will ensure that everything is growing and developing as it should be. If your child starts visiting the dentist in Erskineville from an early age, they will get used to the procedure and will develop a good oral hygiene routine.


Preparing your child for their first visit to the dentist in Erskineville


Many adults have a fear of going to the dentist and this can easily influence your child if you are not careful. Make sure you take note of how you talk about the dentist and avoid talking about pain or painful dental procedures, as it is unlikely your child will remember all these things. Instead, create a positive image of the dentist. Answer all of their questions and if you are extra creative create a script and recreate a dental visit along with your child.
