Parents can help children have less fear of the dentist by:
Talk to children in simple terms about the dental procedure such as dental exam, cleaning and fillings before dental appointment.
Read dental book for children to better prepare them to the dental office environment.
Explaining to the children how important it is to take good care of their teeth and gum and explain to their children that the dentist's job is to help them keep their teeth and gums healthy.
Make their first appointment with the dentist as soon the first tooth erupts in their mouth. This way the children will have a first pleasant experience in the dental office.
Bring children's favorite toys, music, etc. during dental appointment
