We understand what it’s like to have a baby unable to sit still at the dentist’s office. Trust us, we’ve been there, both in our personal lives and in our professional lives, working with families at our practice. Here are a few suggestions you can use to make your checkup to our office a little easier, both for you and for your newborn.

First, and perhaps most importantly, don’t set up a visit during your child’s sleepy time! A lack of sleep and quiet time will make a lack of sleep for you later as you deal with a headache subsequent from their temper tantrums. You can also aid your child to behave a little better at the dentist’s office by feeding them a light snack before their checkup, but make sure that you brush their teeth again if you do so.

Instead of feeding them snacks while you wait for your appointment to begin, hold off on snacks until after your visit. This will help our team inspect and clean your child’s chompers faster. Finally, breathe! We are used to working with children and understand that getting the hang of visiting our office can take time.

If you would like to get in touch with the office of Dr. Benjamin Morgan, please call 972-771-9933 to speak with the Rockwall and Heath, Texas, Rockwall Pediatric Dentistry office team. We will be happy to assist you in the dental needs of your child.
