Pediatric Dentistry / Psychological Approach for Children & Teenagers:

Familiarity!  Safety!  Trust!

The best age for the child to visit the dentist for the first time is around the age of two. The first visit has two basic aims:  

  • the psychological approach for the child or teenager and
  • the development of a relationship of trust between the dentist and the parents

Approaching small children:

what age first dentistAt the VSmile Piraeus dental surgery, the dentist and orthodontist talk to children using specific terminology and a stable tone of voice, so that the child can overcome any possible fears they may have, to familiarize themselves with the clinic and the tools and to discover that nothing will cause pain.

Using toys, drawings and the most modern and safe psychological methods, we become friend and continually reward good behaviour.

when a child feels safe, the learn to trust us and then become a very cooperative patient, and this will continue on as they grow not only through childhood but also in adulthood!

Approaching Teenagers:

The psychological approach for teenagers is done discreetly and carefully, as the teenage period is one that is characterised by many psychological and emotional fluctuations, with a vast range of behaviours and outbursts.

In a clear and decisive way we explain to the teenager that they have not come to the dentist in order for us to judge thier oral hygiene state but to help them have a healthy and beautiful smile, strong teeth and nice breath - things that will not only help in their voerall health but will also raise their self esteem in social relationships, espcially those with the opposite sex.

We leave the parents in the waiting room, and inform them regarding all of the health issues reagrding the mouth that can occur with the dangerous habits often adopted by teenagers. For example, smoking, alcohol, piercings in various parts of the mouth and damaging dietary habits and non-safe sexual activities.

Throughout the discussion we give the teenagers the freedom to anything they would like regarding any of these diseases, something they might never ask their parents about because they are embarassed or afraid, or frightened of the reaction they will have or even that the parents don't have the encessary knowledge on the subject. The teenagers soon discover that we are working together on the subject of oral hygiene, and that they can trust us anytime they need to ask anything.

Building a relationship of trust with the parents:

The parents quickly realise that the knowledge, technology and mentality of the dentist has greatly changed from when they were children, and as such may have been through a traumatic experience at the dentist! This helps us build a relationship of trust so that the next time the parents can wait calmly int he waiting room until the child has finished with their appoitment.
