My Son's First Visit to the Dentist

My son is 3 years old and I'm starting to notice a blackish spot on one of his molars so I began to worry. That's the time my husband and I decided to take him to a pedia dentist. We decided to take him to Abesamis Dental Clinic in Festival Mall, Alabang for a dental check up and cleaning.

The office had a mini playground at the waiting area. My son's dentist was Dra. Pam Abesamis-Villanueva. When we entered her office, there were lots of dolls, toys, and Disney posters everywhere so the child can feel at home.  I also have no complains with Dra. Pam because she was very good. Whenever we have questions, she answers them and then elaborates when needed.

I'm very happy that my son did not shout nor cried in the dental office. Dra. Pam even said that it's a good thing that we didn't wait for the teeth to rot before visiting because it would have been a painful experience for my son. Thank God for that.

To make the visit more enjoyable for the child, they have a small LCD screen where my son watched Thomas & Friends while his teeth were being cleaned.

Because of my son's good behavior, Dra. even gave him a free toy that my son really loved.  He's even excited for his next visit so that he can get another toy. :P

Good dental hygiene for kids is very important and a child is never too young to introduce him to it. Let's not wait for him to have bad teeth to visit the dentist to prevent him from having a traumatic experience.

Consultation and cleaning costs P1550.
