We understand the struggles to get your kids to comply during their check up at the dentist especially if it’s their first ever trip. It can be difficult to choose a suitable dental clinic for your kids. But do not worry, Pure NZ Dental is a great dentist for kids!
Here are 3 Pure NZ Dental ways we offer to help overcome that little fear!
- BUILD CONFIDENCE AND TRUST
- EXAMINATION AND ADVICE
- PROCEED WITH REQUIRED TREATMENT
1. BUILD CONFIDENCE AND TRUST / EXAMINATION AND ADVICE
We believe that first impression matters even for your young kid. We have a waiting area with toys and TV that is playing your kid shows. This would instantly make them feel comfortable while interacting with other younger patients that are waiting to be seen too.
TV screening is not only in the waiting room, but we have it in the treatment rooms as well. You will see the TV attached to the dental chairs and ceiling. Best thing is that your child can choose to watch their favourite show! Isn’t that nice?
Our lovely dentist or nurse will greet your child warmly and bring both you and the child into the treatment room. Your kid will be invited to sit on the dental chair but if they are too anxious or too small for the dental chair, the accompanying parent is able to hop onto it too while having their child on their right shoulder when the chair is brought back for the dentist to begin their first course of action – examination.
For most kids, even a quick check is scary for them. They will begin to cry even before the dentist puts on their mask and gloves. This is normal as they are just getting used to this new look – Mask and rubber gloves. The dentists will use this opportunity of them crying to shine the light into their mouth to count the number of teeth and also, highlight the teeth that require further dental treatment.
Once the dentists have gathered the relevant information on the first check, they will proceed to give their opinion and advice for your child’s case.
Advice varies for the different types of teeth situation that is presented during their examination.
2. PROCEED WITH DENTAL TREATMENT REQUIRED
With good hygiene habits, kids and adults can easily get away with dental treatments. But sometimes, dentists are required to lend a helping hand. This treatment is classified in two categories – Urgent and non-urgent cases.
We usually classify this depending on the type of dental needs presented during examination. If the child is receptive for the treatment to be done on their first visit, we would ensure that the treatment is done quickly and accurately in order to not bore them.
Otherwise, the dentist will advise the parents to schedule another appointment within a time frame to get the treatment sorted.
3. CERTIFICATE OF BRAVERY FOR THE KIDS
Last but not least, in order to thank and motivate our little patients to continue to be happy to set foot in the dental practice. We hand out certificates to ensure that they looked forward to the end of their appointment and is eager to come back to us for the routine biannual check-ups.
At Pure NZ Dental, our friendly and highly professional team are passionate about providing you with the dental care that you deserve!
