You are probably aware that there are a number of steps you should take if you’re raising a child. For instance, you may understand that you should keep your little one active, take them to your pediatrician regularly, and encourage them to follow a healthy diet. However, did you know that it’s also important for you to set up regular appointments with our dental team?

Do you know why these regular checkups are important? As you may have already guessed, your child generally won’t have any dental issues that need to be treated during their first appointment. Instead, these dental appointments are important because they can help your child adjust to visiting a dental office. This is important because your children might not enjoy these visits in the future.

Luckily, there are many things you might be able to do to make these dental appointments more enjoyable for your little one. You see, it’s important that you help your child learn about the different treatments that could happen when you visit our team. Of course, there are several different methods you may want to use, such as showing your little one a video or reading them a book.

If you have any concerns about how you can keep your little one’s teeth healthy and strong, or would like to learn more about their first appointment in Lenexa, Kansas, we invite you to contact Seaman Family Dentistry by calling 913-353-4095. Dr. Robert Seaman and our dental team are eager to meet with you soon.
