My child listens to everything everyone says and is very inquisitive. As such, when we were in the dentist's office and she heard she needed a filling, she instantly wanted to know more about what that meant.
Not wanting to frighten her, I struggled to explain exactly what would happen in a child-friendly way. I wanted to prepare her for the experience, yet at the same time, make sure that she was not scared or nervous when she went in for her appointment.
If your child needs a filling, you too may want to know how to best prepare your child for their appointment. I hope the information contained on my website gives you good ideas for talking to your child and preparing him for his dental filling appointment.
