Taking kids to the dentist is necessary to keep their teeth healthy and promote excellent oral hygiene habits.  When preparing for a visit try not to include too many details.  Doing so will raise more questions, and adding more information about an extra treatment, like a filling, may cause unnecessary anxiety.  Don't use the 'S' (shot),'H' (hurt) or 'P' (pain) words with children.  The doctors, hygienists & assistants will use their own vocabulary to help kids understand what's going on.  It is normal and age-appropriate for a young child to cry, whine, wiggle, and not want to be examined by a stranger.  Stay calm and remember that the dentist and staff are used to working with children and have seen their share of tantrums.
