As you know, it’s normal for some children to feel anxiety before a dental visit. A study says that 11% among over 440 children who have been to the dentist aged 9 to 12 years didn’t like their dental visit. While 12% said, they were afraid.
In general, bad experiences in the dental clinic or how the staff treats them are most likely a major reason kids have dental anxiety. While a friendly and nice dental team can make young patients cooperate better. In addition, the decoration and arrangement of your office play a vital role in encouraging your young patients to come back for another dental appointment.
Here are some unique theme ideas you can consider:
Your anxious young patients can feel at ease when you offer them a friendly and non-threatening environment, such as a movie theater-themed clinic. Remember that not all patients had a stress-free trip on their way to your office. Aside from welcoming them with a smile, they can get comfortable when something catches their attention during their dental visit.
Whether you choose to put it in the reception area or your working space, it’s important that you hire professional artists or designers. Before committing to them, make sure to follow the “visit our website rule.” This way, you can check out their portfolios and determine if their work matches what you want and need.
Imagine your young patients arriving at your office like having an underwater adventure. With eye-catching images full of friendly sea creatures, they can immerse themselves in an incredible underwater wonderland. It will be easier to encourage them to come back for another visit because they will have something to look forward to.

Educational but Exciting Mural Wallpaper
It helps alleviate dental anxiety if you let your young patients understand dental procedures better. You can do this by decorating your clinic with children-friendly images. It could be cool characters demonstrating proper ways to have white and healthy teeth.
This will not only engage and teach your young patients about good oral health, but it will also provide colorful decoration to your office.
Seek and Find Murals
This is a perfect decoration for your waiting area. While your young patients wait for their appointment, they can have something to do. Both parents and kids can look for different objects hidden on the mural.
You can choose from various designs, such as a farm, amusement park, outer space, etc. If you have some ideas, you can tell your artists, and they can do it for you.
Though this is not necessarily designed in your clinic, you can bring your desired theme outside through a vehicle. Plus, it’s an excellent way to advertise your clinic. Every time you leave your office, anyone will know about your clinic wherever your car goes.
You can use attractive vinyl wraps and 3D characters that children love. Note that flat top vehicles work best, such as Ford Flex, Toyota Scion, and most pick-up trucks. But if you have a different existing car, your designers will find a way to make it happen. That’s why finding versatile artists is vital.
