Nanny McPhee is probably one of the movies that kids watch over and over and I love seeing the similarities when it comes to our chosen career. Dealing with children can be very tricky, especially when you are a dentist like I am. The image that society has painted for me hasn’t helped a bit either. I’m used to seeing children hesitating to come in, especially when they come to realize that it’s a dentist’s office they are stepping into. Their reactions are just priceless! Same as how the kids in the story reacted when they first saw Nanny McPhee.
Children can be very perceptive and intelligent and when you show them that you genuinely care about them and educate them properly about why they have to visit the dentist they instantly change and prefer to take an active role in their dental health. Nanny McPhee converted the kids with her magic, and I believe I have the magic too and I change children’s perception and dental habits every day in my practice.
They may be young but they are definitely capable of understanding the importance of good dental practices. With my years of experience, it always warms my heart when I am able to make a believer out of these kids and have them adapt good dental practices into their daily activities at this early stage. With the parents cooperation with providing regular dental check-ups, supervised dental care at home, and getting dental sealants for their kids, we can ensure that we are setting up these kids for excellent dental health.
