Vasundhara Dental Clinic & Orthodontic Centre focuses strongly on preventive dental care.
The branch of dentistry specialising in children's dentistry is known as Paediatric Dentistry/ Pedodontics.
The team at Vasundhara Dental Clinic, Ghaziabad believes in the importance of maintaining healthy teeth and gums from an early age.By instilling strong dental habits from childhood, your child is more likely to keep their natural teeth for life.
Do's and Don'ts of Your Child's First Visit with the Dentist
• Familiarise your child with the dental clinic. Take your toddler along when someone else in the family who enjoys their dental check-up is going too.
• Schedule your child's appointment earlier in the day when they are alert and fresh.
• Be low-key. Treat the visit as routine. Answer any questions the child has honestly but not too specifically.
• Be patient if your child is frightened and non-cooperative. It may be better to reschedule another time.
• Let the dentist decide whether you should stay in the room. Children often respond better without their parents present.
• Don't wait for an emergency to be the first visit.
• Don't make the visit the high point of the day. Your child will suspect something is up.
• Avoid using bribery or threats in an attempt to encourage good behaviour.
• Refrain from threatening the child with a dental visit for any refusal to brush teeth or misbehaviour.
• Avoid saying negative words like pain, pull, jab or drill, or phrases like “It won't hurt much” or “it won't be too bad” as this will only create anxiety.
• Don't try and explain exactly what will happen. The dentist has special words and ways to explain procedures to children.
