Are they going to refuse to open their mouth?
Will there be tears or tantrums?
Will they be scared?
As Brooklyn pediatric dentists, we’ve seen plenty of nervous little ones and parents! However, there is a way to ease your kiddo into the experience and help eliminate their fear of the unknown.
How? A tool we often recommend to parents at Bitesize Pediatric Dentistry is reading about going to the dentist. Stories are a fun, easy way to prepare your child and let them know what to expect at their appointment in a way they can understand.
One issue we’ve seen though, is that even some well-intentioned books talk about things like getting cavities filled and teeth pulled. Sure, that happens but not usually at the first visit or a regular checkup and putting that idea in a child’s head can backfire.
Well, we’ve taken matters into our hands here at Bitesize by creating an engaging, cute, positive downloadable story called Going to the Bitesize Dentist that you can read to your child before their first visit. Download it for free today!
