Relaxing your child at the Dentist

How to help your child relax at the dentist

DentalCareXtra offers a range of services so read on to find out more:

We have a free service where we offer a “familiarisation” session for children from the age of 2.

It can be very daunting for a young child when first going to the dentist.  Our familiarisation sessions are for a few minutes when your child can sit in the dental chair. This will take away the fear that often accompanies young children when they visit the dentist for the first time. We can make an appointment for these sessions or walk-ins are welcome.

Also, did you know that DentalCareXtra now has a therapy dog? Dexter is a Cavoodle (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel x Poodle). He has been with us now for a few months and is currently going to puppy school. Dexter takes care of people from young children to adults who experience anxiety when going to the dentist, helps them to relax and takes the stress out of the situation.

Another form to help with anxiety that we have at the practice is using calming blends of essential oils by doTerra. It is well documented that essential oils and the presence of a calming influence like Dexter have the benefit of making a visit to the dentist a welcoming and positive experience.

Forget the preferred provider, let us be your preferred dentist! Contact us at DentalCareXtra, or alternatively, complete the form below, and one of our friendly team members will contact you.
