34,000+ Dentists Converge in Chicago

CHICAGO, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following release was issued today by the Chicago Dental Society:

Who: The Chicago Dental Society (CDS) recently polled more than 300 dentists about issues such as their own dental habits, adults seeking braces, and how the current presidential candidates' smiles rate.

As we countdown to CDS's annual Midwinter Meeting, one of the largest displays of dental products in North America, here are a few of the leading tips for parents to make visiting the dentist something that kids look forward to.

Start dental visits early. Many dentists recommend starting visits from as early as six months or about the same time your child's first tooth appears. Visiting the dentist at a young age will help the child to develop positive associations with the experience.

Don't make it such a 'big deal.' Many dentists surveyed agree that parents set the stage for the dental visit and can be the culprit for any fears their child experiences. Be wary of making your children think the dentist is scary before they even go. Let them form their own opinions.

Entertain while you wait. Play with toys, watch cartoons, or fill out coloring books in the waiting room with your children. This will help distract them from feeling scared and will also help calm you down too.

Relax! Your child can pick up on your anxieties. Remember this is an important part of your child's health.

Why: Data was collected for the Chicago Dental Society's 143rd annual Midwinter Meeting, which begins at McCormick Place in Chicago on February 21, 2008. The exhibit floor opens on February 22.
