The First Visit at the Dentist’s

The main aim of the first visit is to get to know your child. That’s why, during the first visit, we will normally not do any treatment yet. We carefully look at the number of teeth and the dental situation. Then we extend our advice, well-founded and always focussing on what’s most important: the dental health of each young patient.

Gentle diagnostics – relaxed kids

We’ll start with checking whether your child’s teeth are healthy or if any treatment might be called for in order to heal a diseased tooth. In the interest of a reliable diagnosis, it may be necessary to take digital x-rays. Your child will get to know us and our practice in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We encounter our little patients with friendliness and joy, and we express appreciation at their courage and their willingness to let us treat them.


The tried-and-tested 4-step-method developed by Dr. Baumstieger at a glance:



Take your child to the dentist – without fear

Open curiosity is probably one of the most fulfilling gifts our children give us every day. And this curiosity is also the key for making the first encounter with a dentist a positive experience. We’ve made the experience that parents can best prepare for a fear-free visit to the dentist by triggering their children’s curiosity.



The child in the focus of interest: gentle dentistry according to the Baumstieger method

From the bottom of our heart, we can assure you that we are looking forward to each and every child in our practice. Each child is a boon: not only will your child discover new things, but we too can make new and wonderful experiences every day. We accept all young patients with their own ways and idiosyncrasies. This leads to our special attitude towards the children – as doctors, we will keep in the background, as it were, will not be exacting nor demanding. Your child is what’s important, and we will attune our approach to how well he or she is prepared to respond to our treatment.





The basis for being gentle: trust

Some children have a natural trust, others require more time to build trust. That’s why we welcome each small step your child will take into this new world. Each child progresses at their own speed. We attune our approach to that: with lots of patience and loving care. We avoid supposedly calming phrases like “You don’t need to be afraid, it’s not going to hurt, to be sure!” Our subconscious does not understand negation. So the child will only understand: “You need to be afraid, it’s going to hurt!” Kids will then get distrustful, and some of them are only waiting for something unpleasant to happen. That’s why, after treatment, we also won’t say things like: “See, it wasn’t that bad, it hardly hurt!” Again, with such a phrase the child would learn that a visit to the dentist is usually something bad where he or she might quite possibly get hurt.



Achieve the goal in a playful way

In our long-standing experience, we’ve found that with children, you reach your goals best in a playful way: no fear of the dentist, and make the kids look forward to their next appointment.
