Kids dental care from Hanford California Hanford Family Dental Center
If you have kids, you probably know the full schedule they create. Their activities, play dates, and school add up to very busy days for you. At Hanford Family Dental Center, our focus is on patient satisfaction. We provide dental services for you, and dentistry for kids. If you are in the Hanford, CA area and looking for a way to ease a crowded schedule, contact us. We understand the needs of young patients, and we take the extra effort to make each visit a fun and positive experience.

Ease your child’s anxiety about dentistry

  • Start young. It is recommended that you begin taking your child to the dentist before the first teeth even arrive. However, if it is not that early for you, the sooner your child comes to a dentist the better. This allows us to help them get used to the experience from the earliest age possible.
  • When talking about the dentist to your child, keep it simple. Don’t go into too many details. Too much information about possible things like fillings can merely increase your child’s fears.
  • Watch your vocabulary. Do not use words like “shot,” “hurt,” or “pain.” Even very young children understand these concepts and will have anxiety. Instead talk to them about how the dentist wants to count their teeth and check their smile.
  • Do a “play” visit. Make it a game. Take a toothbrush and use it to count your child’s teeth. Don’t pretend any drilling or other scary things! Then let your child be the dentist and clean the teeth of a doll.

Our promises

  • Our goal is to make every family member feel comfortable and at ease.
  • We work hard to make dental care as easy as possible for you, including the financial side.
