Ideally, if the clinic owner would be in agreement, it would be optimum to have no dental work at all done during this appointment if the child had never had dental work done or had a negative prior experience.

A follow up appointment would be booked for the following week. This would give the chance to the child to absorb and integrate the information of the orientation appointment.

It increase the chances for this patient to have a lifetime of better experience.

By incorporating this one tool you create an atmosphere of empathy, choice, and clear communication, contributing to a positive and supportive dental experience for both parents and their children
