Turning a Negative into a Positive Experience
Children can learn to be fearful from past dental visits, doctor’s visits, or even stories they’ve heard. At Dr.Zhu’s office, we make every effort to help these children “unlearn” their negative views of dentistry. We manage their expectations by helping them understand what is taking place with friendly, non-threatening language. Although you may not see your child’s attitude change overnight, you will likely see it improve with successive visit.
Parents are Welcome
Since a dental office can be a strange and unsettling place to a child, we welcome you to be with your child during their dental care. However, these are times when a child may act more rebellious when a parent is present. “Acting out” for some children is normal, however, counter productive to dental treatment.
