Deluxe Dental Group: Your dentist in Warren, NJ
We want you and your child to feel comfortable when they go to the dentist, especially if this is their first visit, which is why we follow the below steps to help ensure it's a pleasant experience for everyone.
DENTISTRY FOR KIDS
Meet and Greet
To help your child feel comfortable, Dr. Scott of Deluxe Dental Group will introduce himself and his staff as well as explain each step of the checkup with your child. Dr. Scott will show him/her the tools he'll be using, and for young children, assure him/her that he/she can sit on Mommy's or Daddy's lap as well as stop any procedure if he/she is nervous. At any point, Dr. Scott will be happy to address your questions and concerns.
Since some dental equipment can make scary noises, especially the spitting cup and the suction straw, Dr. Scott will show your child how it works and how to use it properly. He will then put on gloves and a mask to count your child's teeth and can demonstrate either on a model or on you first, before putting his fingers in your child's mouth.
Using a rotary toothbrush, Dr. Scott will let your child see and hear the brush before it's even placed in his/her mouth to help put him/her at ease. With the parent's permission, Dr. Scott may apply a coat of topical fluoride as the final step. Remember, a child should not eat or drink for 30 minutes after treatment.
