When should my child see the dentist for the first time?
We agree with the recommendation by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, which says that your child should have their first dental visit by their first birthday.
Did you know that more than one in four U.S. children have cavities by the time they are four years old? Getting an early start will give you the best chance to create a customized preventative treatment plan to avoid cavities. The plan can be adapted and changed as your child grows and develops.
We’ll work with you at every appointment and discuss what you can expect in growth and development in between check-ups. We'll also answer your questions about how your child is developing. Parents often worry about habits like pacifier use and thumb sucking, and we are happy to discuss these concerns with you.
Another good reason for your child to start seeing a dentist early is that it helps to make dental visits a normal part of your child’s routine. This will help prevent problems with anxiety and phobia in the future. Additionally, normalizing dental care will help influence your child's self-care, setting the stage for your child to live a healthier life.
