Preparing for the Dental Office

Preparing for the Dental Office

A recommended way to prepare your child for the dentist is to talk with your dentist beforehand about any medical concerns or questions that you may have. You can ask about sedation options that are available to help your child relax and cooperate. If your child has a heart condition, talk to your physician and dentist about having your child take antibiotics before a dental procedure.
