How can I prepare my child with special needs for their dental appointment?
Preparing your child for their dental visit can include discussing what they can expect, reading them stories about dental visits, or even visiting the dental office beforehand to familiarize them with the environment. Communicate openly with the dental team about your child's specific needs, triggers, or preferences to ensure a smooth visit.
