Our dentist and team love welcoming children to our office! We enjoy meeting kids, and feel that a child’s first dental appointment is incredibly important in shaping their perception of dentistry. We work hard to make children’s first visits enjoyable and positive, emphasizing fun, not fear. As a mother of two, Dr. Catalina Phan is very aware of the difficulty in ensuring healthy dental habits in children. She states that, “I find that one of the best way to encourage brushing and flossing is to be a good role model. My kids brush and floss their teeth at the same time as I am. Then we play ‘your turn, then mommy’s or daddy’s turn.’ I usually re-brush and re-floss their teeth after giving them positive encouragement on the job “well-done.” I try to make the event a special fun time together. As a general rule, if your child still needs help getting ready, he or she will need help with brushing and flossing.”
