How interesting a dental appointment can be
As an appointment at the dentist is a situation that some children do not rate highly from the start, we make the stay in our practice as pleasant as possible for our junior patients.
Which means we introduce your child to the experience of a dental appointment in a playful manner, step-by-step. As such, we use all the natural curiosity and spirit of discovery that children have. Because this is exactly what the principle of desensitisation results in: tell, show, do. In language appropriate to their age, we explain to your child what we would like to do and illustrate the actions we take. If a treatment is necessary, for example, we present the instruments and the procedure with puppets, so the subsequent measures we take are no longer anything new and appear familiar.
A major advantage of this method is that your child will not develop any fear of the dentist in the first place. He or she will be happy to continue attending our practice and will experience appointments as stress-free.
