Sometimes, despite your best efforts to motivate your children to brush and floss regularly, they can still develop cavities. No worries! This is just good feedback for both of you about how your child is doing with their oral hygiene routine. It’s all part of the learning process.

Is your child afraid of visiting Dr. Samuel Bailey for that dental filling? We at West Valley Pediatric Dentistry completely understand that the concept of a dental filling can cause some trepidation, especially in young children. We are here to support you and your child through the process in every way we can.

So what can you do to help your child feel less anxious? Here are some pointers:

-You probably know that if you are stressed, your child is likely to pick up on that stress and emulate what they see you do. Make preparations to manage your own stress that day so that you can be calm and collected no matter what happens.

-Stay positive. If you are not only calm but happy, your child will see that the dentist can actually be a fun place to go.
