When should your child see a dentist? old

First Dental Visit

The American Association of Pediatric Dentistry recommends children see their pediatric dentist by their first birthday. We agree with this recommendation. In fact, we’d prefer to see your child around six months. This early visit enables us to identify any risk factors. The age 1 visit is for you – the parents! We’ll give you oral hygiene information so you can properly care for your child’s smile. We’ll even speak with you about your oral hygiene habits, as these have been shown to have a significant impact on your child’s cavity risk. Practicing proper oral hygiene daily can prevent costly dental work.
