Bad dental experiences typically begin at an early age. Many patients had a tough treatment procedure, or unfriendly encounter with a dentist as a child, which may cause them to feel fear or anxiety about their dental visits as an adult. Unfortunately, this prevents many adults from getting much needed dental care. This is not the first experience we want to create for your child. Your children's dentist in Amherst, NH has some thoughts on eliminating dental fear for your child.
Exceptional First Visits
At Family Dental Care, we strive to set your child up for success at their dental appointments by making every visit to our office a positive and pleasant experience. Our goal is that they even look forward to coming to their dental appointments. We take things slowly at those first visits and explain everything we're doing along the way so your child feels comfortable throughout their procedure. Dr. Edwards is friendly and has over thirty years of experience caring for children in Amherst, so you can rest assured that your child is in good hands.
What if My Child is Already Fearful?
If your child already has a fear of the dentist we'll work with them to overcome that fear by starting slowly with them. We spend a lot of time talking to them and listening to their concerns so we can help them work through their fears. Dr. Edwards has a lot of experience in helping patients of all ages overcome their fears, and he spends extra time explaining any procedures or treatments they might be having done, so they feel completely comfortable before we start. You can help by supporting your child through these difficult times, and eventually, it will become easier for them.
