The first appointment
The feeling of comfort during the first appointment, nice atmosphere and no associations with pain are all highly important factors that affect the child’s later attitude towards dental treatment. During the first appointment little patients get to know the surgery and its personnel. The doctor, often in the form of play, accustoms the child to stomatological instruments. In this way the surgery becomes a place associated with play and nice entertainment. After each appointment children can choose a little gift for bravery that encourages them to come again.
