Happy Children At A Pediatric Dentist

If we are honest, most of us don’t enjoy going to the dentist. We made the decision that we didn’t like the dentist as children. Going to the dentist wasn’t fun, sometimes uncomfortable and everything was set up to accommodate adults, from the boring waiting room to the too big examination chairs, to the staff, that really didn’t understand children. Fast forward to the next generation and now going to the dentist for kids, can be an enjoyable experience. Pediatric dentists offices are set up with children in mind. Kids don’t mind going to the dentist. In fact, it’s a fun place to go.

The waiting room in the pediatric dental office is usually set up for children. Many have fun themes such as “Under The Sea” or “Circus Big Top.” There are books and magazines that will interest children, as well as puzzles and games to keep them occupied before it’s time to go back to see the dentist. Usually it’s requested that parents stay in the waiting room when the children are called back. As difficult as it is for parents, it’s proven that the children do much better, and are much more independent with the dentist, when the parents wait in the waiting room.

A Dentist for kids usually has dental equipment sized for children. A General dentist, who works on adults and children, has full sized equipment and chairs. It’s sometimes scary for a small child to sit in the big dental chair. In a pediatric dentist’s office, everything is just the right size for children to make them feel more comfortable.

The office staff in a pediatric dentist’s office is usually very friendly and enjoys working with children. The office has a relaxed, yet fun atmosphere to put everyone at ease. The staff understands the fears children may have at the dentist and are experienced in ways to make them relax.

Choosing a pediatric dentist for your child or children is a great way to teach them about oral hygiene. They’ll learn about dental care and the importance of taking care of their teeth. They’ll develop positive feelings about going to the dentist and know it’s nothing to fear and that understanding will most likely stay with them the rest of their lives.
