Children Can Have Fun at the DentistPosted Mar 20, 2015 Posted in Pediatric
When it comes to choosing a dentist for their children, parents want to select an office that has a stellar reputation for care for both kids and adults and offers a variety of procedures. Those that need a pediatric dentist in the Sioux Falls, South Dakota area can turn to us at Sensational Smiles. No matter the procedure that a patient needs and no matter the age of the patient, we can help them get a better, brighter smile.
Our pediatric dentistry at Sensational Smiles is simply unmatched. Whether a patient’s offspring is a baby, a toddler, or a child, we can help instill good oral hygiene habits now that a child can carry with them for life. As long as a patient’s child is at least a year old, we can see the child for an appointment. During the first meeting with a child, our dentists at Sensational Smiles will learn a bit about the patient’s family background and oral needs. The dentist will also check the child’s teeth to make sure that none are missing.
Parents don’t have to worry about any discomfort at this point. At Sensational Smiles, we try to make the process of visiting a dentist as pleasant as possible for the child. In fact, our dentists will use dentistry terms in ways that children can understand, making oral hygiene fun. Once the examination is over, our dentists don’t let a child leave without an oral hygiene kit. We load our child patients up with fun items like stickers, colorful toothbrushes, flossers in interesting shapes, yummy toothpaste, and even a timer so that kids know how long to brush.
Kids won’t mind visiting the dentist again at Sensational Smiles. After the visit is over, we reward our child patients by letting them pick a fun toy for themselves from our treasure chest. We will also mail out a First Dentist Visit card so that kids can show off to their friends and family. Children can also join Sensational Smiles’ Cavity Free Club, which provides fun rewards like certificates, stickers, cash prizes, and toy prizes as long as the child keeps brushing their teeth.
At Sensational Smiles, we know how difficult it can be to get kids to the dentist. We ease children into the process and teach them that not only is brushing their teeth fun, but it’s good for them as well.
