They also strive to make their offices child friendly.
There are many children who dislike visiting the dentist, and are even afraid of the dentist. A great way to calm them down before their appointments is to create a child friendly office. The first step you should take is to hire people who are good with kids. Your dental hygienists, assistants, and receptionists should all be able to work well with kids. Being surrounded by friendly people can help children calm down.
The second step you should take is to decorate your office with children in mind. Include bright colors in the waiting room and treatment room. You should also consider using cartoons and animated characters. The third step you should take is to fill your waiting room with toys and children’s books. If you give them something to play with before their appointment, they may be a little less fearful when they come into the treatment room.
