Playing “make believe” is a great deal of fun for children and it can help them prepare for a dental appointment. If parents can create a “fake” session at home, the child will be much more open to having his or her teeth and gums examined. What steps can you take?

– Pretend to perform a mock examination.
– Avoid mentioning procedures such as drilling.
”Practice makes perfect, particularly when it comes to helping your child alleviate his or her fear of the dentist.”
