Calling all 3 – 5 Year Old’s
At Dentistry On Ellesmere in Scarborough, Markham and North York, we will make your child’s first visit an enjoyable one. We would be happy to give you and your child a tour of our facility. On this special day our touring junior and their parents will meet Dr. Allen and our friendly staff. Our reassuring approach will make every visit comfortable, relaxing and fun. We offer play station, television and a children’s area to keep them entertained while they wait. We believe children should be introduced to the world of dentistry in a friendly and enjoyable environment so it will enhance a positive attitude towards dental health. This will also create an eager office and home care participant and be the beginning of a lifetime of good dental health!
As a parent you can help with your child’s concerns about their dental visits by speaking in positive terms. Children learn much from their parents and friends about the dentist which can adversely affect their preconceived ideas. Certainly if your child is scared or anxious you can accompany him or her during their visit.
For children’s oral health in their younger years the most important advice that I can give is that THE LAST THING TO GO INTO THEIR MOUTHS BEFORE BED IS A TOOTHBRUSH. Any food, juice, or milk before bed can linger all night in the mouth to fuel bacteria to make decay.
