Our Evans Street Dental Center dental team wants your child to grow up feeling calm, comfortable, and relaxed in the dental chair. However, the only way we can make that possible is with your help. So, if you would like your child to enjoy visiting their dentist in McMinnville, Oregon, then we encourage you to do the following things:
-Bring them with you when you come in for your checkups. Seeing their parent in the dental chair will help them feel like they can do it as well.
-When talking about your dental visits and treatments, try not to use negative words like “pain,” “needle,” “hurt,” etc.
-Play “dentist” at home instead of “house” to help your child become familiar with the process of a dental cleaning and checkup.
-Ask your dentist, Dr. Natalya Ramsay, how she explains dental treatment to children. The soft, comforting words will help you explain treatments to your child without scaring them.
-If your child asks you questions about dental visits and treatments, answer them honestly and sensitively.
If you do these things, there is a good chance your child will have a positive dental experience. For more information and details, please remember that you can always talk to your dentist, Dr. Natalya Ramsay, and our dental team. All you need to do is dial 503-472-1402 and we’ll be more than happy to help you. We look forward to your phone call!
