Instil in children a healthy and unselfconscious attitude vis-à-vis dental care
A relation of trust
The corner stone of a relation of trust with children is to make children feel safe and respected.
First and foremost focused on the children’s wellbeing, we are doing the utmost to make each and every visit to Dentist4kids a positive experience for children.
A recreational experience
In order to play down the experience of going to the dentist we use words that the child knows and understands in order to name dental treatments and instruments (for example, pencil, shower, photo, etc.)
We use puppets and 3D models that can be manipulated to enable children to easily imagine what is happening inside their mouth.
Our practice offers a warm, lively and entertaining environment
Dealing with anxiety
We assist children in dealing with fear or anxiety
We take into consideration the child’s personality and listen attentively to his/her wishes
We always address the child first and use a vocabulary that the child can understand
