Paediatric dentistry is a special branch in dentistry based on a specific relationship between a therapist and a young patient. Fear from the first procedure as a fear from the unknown is stronger than any story and parental convincing, and gaining trust into a dentist is a demanding task. The youngest patients are brutally honest, demand extraordinary patience and attention, and work with them is very often more than just dentistry.
Children’s biggest problem is to trust a dentist, and every lie that “nothing will hurt” can start an avalanche of mistrust once they feel the pain for the first time. After that a child seeks parent’s consolation which breaks the circle of trust between a child and a dentist, and new relationship is hard to establish.
Therefore, two basic principles apply – the first is that you must never lie to a child, and the second is that a parent is only an escort who must not interfere with the first contact of a child and a dentist.
In the end of trust creating process you will have a child who will grow into an adult and leave the fear from a dentist in their early childhood.
