Tips To De-Stress Your Child's Trip To The Dentist - As Seen On WEAU

Jessica Martin, co-owner of Martin Dental, presented ways to de-stress your children's dental visits on WEAU for National Children's Dental Health Month.  

Jessica shared these three tips that can help set your child up for a lifetime of happy, healthy smiles!

1. Encourage your child to play dentist at home. This allows your child to become comfortable with what might happen at their own dental visit. 

Bring headphones and a comfort item to your visits. Headphones and their choice of music can drown out sounds that can be scary, and their comfort item will put them at ease and can also be a conversation piece to warm up the experience with the doctor/hygienist.

3. Have your child accompany you for your routine dental appointments so they can see how you handle them and how easy it is.
