Dental visits can be a challenge for many adults, so you can imagine how a child feels when they are faced with a completely new environment. Part of the children’s dentistry services we offer at our Medina, OH dental office involves approaching your child with compassion and a caring approach.
Dr. Chistopher Sinick doesn't want you to feel bad if your child is agitated or nervous during their visits. Our entire team understands that it is normal for kids to worry. As a children’s dentist, we know that it is essential for us to work proactively with your child to help them develop a positive attitude about seeing the dentist. Taking the extra time with them now will go a long way towards reducing the anxiety that many adult patients experience.
We effectively interact with your child by offering positive reinforcement and reassurance. Studies have found that it is essential for us to communicate with kids using reassuring words. Intentionally and frequently using use certain words like, mommy, daddy, sister, girl, boy, etc. helps your child feel secure and comfortable. For example, a phrase like “Let mommy see your teeth!” can be very comforting for a child.
The point is for us to interact with your child in a way that respects their unique needs and creates an environment where they feel safe and secure. As a parent, you also need to get involved in supporting your child’s positive feelings about their dental care.
