first dental visit

Has your preschooler visited the dentist yet? Mr. S. has actually been to the pediatric dentist since before he was a year old, but it was only this past visit, (last week) where he didn't scream or cry when the dentist came near him. Both the dentist and I were very relieved!

It's a good idea to visit a dentist (or pediatric dentist) before your child turns one, but many parents put off this off until the child is a little older. If your preschooler has never been to the dentist before, there are some things you might want to do ahead of time to prepare him.

How does your preschooler do at the dentist?
