Daughter suffering from bleeding gums - Need help!

My daughter is suffering from bleeding gums while brushing and flossing. She also suffers from gum discoloration. Recently I have noticed plaque build up on her teeth. Pus oozes out from her gums when touched. She is also having bad breath. This bad breath is affecting her self-esteem. She keeps a distance while talking with others. Yesterday she complained me that her gums appear like they are pulling away from her teeth. When I discussed this with my husband, he suggested taking her to a dental clinic in Waterloo that provides child dental checkup ( https://www.smiletown.ca/treatment-info/fixing-baby-teeth/ ). I'm planning to take her there this evening. My daughter has dental phobia and I don't know how to convince her for the dental visit. Any advice!
