Did you know...It is recommended your child see the dentist for the first time at age 2?
By Midcoast Family Dentistry | Nov 08, 2012
Did you know . . . it is important to have your first visit to the dentist when you are still little? We often see patients come in when they are 2 or 3 years old. Tips on making that first visit a good one: (1) Read your child a book about going to the dentist. Often your local library has some on hand or you may borrow one from us. (2) Arrive early at the appointment. This gives kids an opportunity to play in our play area and get comfortable. (3) Bring a stuffed animal along . . . to them it's like having a supportive friend come to help. (4) Pick a time of day that your child is typically in the best mood, i.e., after a nap, during morning hours.
We offer a tour of the building and a ride in the magic chair at no cost to you. Please call 236-3100 to schedule.
