Visiting the Dentist With a Toddler

Toddler visiting the dentist

Regular dental checkups are essential to maintaining proper oral health. Dental visits are not to be used solely to fix pain and problems, but rather to be proactive with oral hygiene.

During the visit, the dentist and dental hygienist will inspect your child’s teeth and gums for any problems or changes and answer any questions you may have.

Your Toddler’s Dentist May:

  • Clean and polish the teeth
  • Apply fluoride varnish or gel
  • Floss between the teeth
  • Take x-rays if necessary
  • And provide general dental education 

Forming a Positive Relationship With the Dentist

Help your child develop a healthy relationship with the dentist by regularly visiting the dentist yourself. Children model the patterns of their parents, so if they see that you are apprehensive, there is a good chance that your child will develop similar attitudes towards the dentist. Don’t express fear of the dentist and perhaps even suggest a fun activity afterwards to get your child looking forward to their dental appointment!
