3. Parent Guidelines

Your child’s comfort and safety are our priority during dental treatment. Many children do better with their caregivers waiting in the lobby rather than accompanying them to the treatment room. This allows them to build a strong relationship with the dental team.


There are a couple of things to keep in mind to help your child do well with any dental appointment:

  1. Be careful about what you and others say.Children respond to their caregivers’ words. We encourage you to portray the dental office as a fun place. Please don’t let anyone tell your child horror stories about dental offices, even in “fun.” Please don’t use words like “shot,” “drill” or “yank.”
  2. Be supportive of the care we are providing your child.If you feel anxious about your child’s dental care please speak with the doctor outside of the treatment room, away from your child. Children often do much better with dental care than most parents expect.
  3. If a dental team member asks for you to wait in the lobby or to sit down, please do so immediately.Sometimes children will act uncooperatively to try to control a situation. They may have had previous experience when they acted uncooperatively and they were removed from that situation. We find that many children do better once their parent has left the treatment room.
  4. Please offer silent support.Children will often listen to their parent’s voice above all others so hearing your familiar voice will be a distraction for them. They will also repeat the behavior to hear your voice again.

Here are a few words that can make your child more at ease when speaking to them about upcoming appointments:
