Tips for Your Child’s Checkup in Highlands Ranch

  • Plan your child’s dental checkup in Highlands Ranch wisely. Your appointment should not be during or immediately following your child’s nap time. Take time to get ready and make sure your child doesn’t feel rushed.
  • Keep your visits regular and start your child’s dental exams and dental checkups early. The initial dental check-up should be done early enough that they are too young to feel any nervousness, and their following dental exams should be frequent enough that it feels like a common event.
  • Try bringing your child to a dental check-up of your own. When a child sees you going to a dental exam, getting your teeth cleaned, talking with your dentist about preventive dental care and preventive dentistry, it helps them pick up on the normalcy of dental exams. Maybe even let them look in your mouth and ask questions. They will feel better knowing mommy or daddy are dental patients too!
  • Play dentist at home. Children will learn what to expect and might even look forward to going to the dentist in Highlands Ranch if it’s made to be a common, fun, and educational game that they play with their parents. Have them count your teeth, and express to them the importance of preventive dental care.
