Few things are more worrisome for a young child than going to the dentist. Buzzing drills, loud noises, and mask-covered faces create a tense experience for even the bravest toddler. Even so, dental checkups are essential to any healthy smile. Therefore, it is important to ensure that a child’s first visit is relaxing and light-hearted. It will set the tone for how the child may view dental care in the future.
