How old should my child be before I bring them to the dentist?
It is never too early to get a child acquainted with our dental team. Decay can start within months of eruption and accidents can occur at any time. Your child’s first dental visit should occur by age one or within six months of when you see the first tooth. Regular dental examinations support good health. The earlier your child visits our office, the better the chance of preventing a problem, such as decay. This can also increase your child’s comfort with the experience. During your child’s visit we will:
- Examine your child’s mouth
- Address any problems before they become more serious
- Monitor the development of your child’s teeth
- Provide tips to care for your child’s teeth and gums
