Your Child’s First Visit to Clinique Dentaire Tapiero, Bouhadana & Associés

It is recommended that a child first visit the dentist at approximately 2 years old.


This visit is the perfect opportunity to build a relationship of trust between the dentist, the hygienist and your child. In performing a dental examination, a cleaning and a review of brushing methods, our team can help to ensure your child’s dental health.


Almost half of the population admit that they are afraid of visiting the dentist. Therefore, it is important to help your child get used to visiting the dentist, in order to avoid developing this fear. By remaining positive and giving your child the proper information, you can ensure that your child will be comfortable when the time comes to visit the dentist in the future.


Before the First Visit

  • Reading a book about a first visit to the dentist may help your child to visualize the situation in advance.
  • It is important to explain to the child what the dentist is going to do.
  • Go over the sequence of events for the visit the night before the appointment in order to avoid unpleasant surprises for your child.
  • It is of utmost importance to avoid associating a visit to the dentist with pain or discomfort.


During the Visit

  • Depending on the age of the child, the dentist may ask you to stay in the examination room with your child, or to return to the waiting room after meeting with you and your child.
  • Listen carefully to the advice that the dentist gives you with respect to your child’s tooth and oral care.
  • It is important to keep a positive attitude throughout the visit.
  • Ask for another appointment in six months for maintenance purposes.


After the Visit

  • The RAMQ insures children up to the age of 10 years.
