Techniques we use to calm nervous kids at the dentist
All children who have either been, or it’s their first time visiting a dentist, require a slightly different approach to ensure they feel less anxiety and stress. Our job is to ensure all children we see have a great experience and to foster the importance of good oral care, which includes a regular 6 month visit to the dentist.
We take more time in communicating with children to ensure they are 100% comfortable before we proceed with any treatment. Whilst in the chair we also provide our young patients with children’s T.V programs via NETFLIX, which acts as audio and visual distraction to keep their mind away from the dental procedure.
In the rare case where the child is unable to be seen and sedation is required then we would consider referring off to a specialist paediatric dental clinic.
