I recall the way I felt when they got me to the dentist with that characteristic carnation oil smell, the noise of the drill and the bizarre tools… I would react and my parents, right next to me, would try to calm me down by telling me it was for my own good. “If there is another way to cure your teeth, let us know and we will do it with pleasure” my mother would say to me strictly but tenderly, every time I whined. “I will find out and I will tell you” I recall telling her time and time again with an incredible childish stubbornness. That’s how my journey in the world of pediatric dentistry began.
… comprehend that prevention is of utmost importance while learning all the hygiene and nutrition practices that ensure it from a young age.
… build a relationship of trust with us, even when some sort of damage needs to be coped with (dental caries, abscess, extraction)
… are reassured in case they happen to start their relationship with the pediatric dentist belatedly and realize that tooth pain is an acceptable experience since the therapist knows the painless therapeutic techniques and options.
… emphasize the initiation of the children and their parents into oral health from the age of about three with regular check-ups and continuous education and reminding of the means and ways of prevention.
… implement the necessary dental treatments in a pleasurable and painless manner, while explaining everything to the children in the language that they understand according to their age, inside our appropriately formed rooms with cheerful colors and our colorful suits.
… absolutely comprehend that our greatest reward through our interaction with the children is that they develop a positive dental experience from a young age, having safeguarded their dental health, which is going to lead them to becoming conscious and proper patients as adults.
