Correct lighting is important for both the dentist and the patient during dental procedures. A well-lit dental clinic enables the dentist to see clearly and work efficiently. When the child enters the treatment room, it is therefore important that they are met by subdued lighting in the room. D-TEC’s lighting is adjustable with both dynamic and indirect light and you can easily adjust the lighting with the remote control. For the child, the right lighting can also have several positive effects. 

Preparing a child for dental visits is important to reduce their anxiety and increase their confidence before the dentist. Here are some tips to help your child feel more comfortable before the dental visit:

  • Talk to your child: Before the visit, talk to your child about what will happen at the dentist’s office and what they can expect during the visit. Explain to them that the dentist will look at their teeth and that everything will be fine.
  • Read children’s books about dental visits: There are many good children’s books about dental visits that can help your child understand what will happen during the visit. Read a book together and talk about it afterwards.
  • Roll play: Play dentist at home and let your child be the dentist while you pretend to be the patient. This can help your child feel more comfortable knowing that dental visits are not as scary as they may think.
  • Prepare for the dental visit: Before the dental visit, tell your child what will happen and what they can expect the dentist and other staff to look like. This way, the child can be prepared for what they will face when they come to the dentist’s office.
  • Reward your child: After the dental visit, give your child a reward for being brave.

In conclusion, preparation and talking to your child about what will happen at the dentist’s office can help them feel more comfortable before the dental visit. Therefore, it is important that dentists and parents work together to help children overcome their fear of the dentist.
