Here at Fairbanks Family Dental Care, we love our pediatric patients!
Many parents ask “When should I bring my child to the dentist?” The answer is as soon as they get their first tooth or by their first birthday – whichever comes first. It is vital for children to become comfortable with the dentist at an early age to prevent dental anxiety.
We want children to believe the dentist’s office is a good place instead of being scared of it. Our goal is for their dental visit to be as fun and positive as possible.
From the moment your child walks through our front door, they are greeted by a friendly staff and welcome to play in our waiting room. We have plenty of toys to keep your little ones busy and we even have a full-sized retro arcade machine! Once back in the treatment room, your child will be made comfortable with blankets and a TV show to watch on the ceiling while we work. Parents are always welcome to join their child in the treatment room. After their appointment, we have a treasure box stocked full of goodies and we even have a No-Cavity Kid’s Club!
Our team loves working with children and providing them a positive, safe experience. If your child is nervous, ask us about our nitrous oxide treatment to help calm their nerves.
If you have any questions or would like your child seen, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (907) 921-8888.
