Happy Visit: Introducing Your Child to the Dentist
At Tooth Acres Dentistry, we believe that healthy smiles start at childhood! Just like we need to teach our children the alphabet and how to tie their shoes, we need to teach them the importance of dental care. But we don’t want the dentist office to be a scary place, we want to make it fun!
When your child is 2-3 years old, we recommend you schedule a Happy Visit for them! Our 10-minute Happy Visit includes:
- a ride in the dental chair
- see how the air and water squirter works
- see how Mr. Thirsty (the water suction straw) works
- tickle their hand with the tooth shiner
- having your child show us how big they can open like an alligator
Because the cooperation and comfort-level of each child varies, we only do the above things that they are willing to do with us. If they do not cooperate at their first Happy Visit, we often recommend you schedule another appointment in 6 months.
NO CAVITY CLUB!
If your child comes in for their cleaning and exam appointment and they are declared cavity-free by Dr. Painter, they will receive a NO CAVITY CLUB sticker and one entry into our monthly prize drawing that’s just for them! Children ages 3-18 years old are eligible.
Each month we will randomly draw a lucky winner from those entered! The winner will get to choose a $25 gift card from a few options. Gift card prizes include Target, SkyZone, Amazon, or Tokens-N-Tickets! The winner will also be celebrated on our Facebook page, with parental permission of course.
We want them to believe it is important, too.
Encourage your child to brush & floss daily,
and lead by example!
