When should I schedule my child's first dental appointment?
We welcome children beginning at the age of three. Of course, if you have questions, want to make sure they are developing normally, or if you suspect something is wrong, you can make an appointment for your little one before then.
Your kids first dental appointment is an exciting time! This appointment is as much about communicating with you, the parent, as it is about checking your child's oral health. We can go over proper home care techniques, show you how to brush and clean your child's teeth and gums, and go over what you can expect as your little one develops.
We move at the pace that is right for your child. If we can clean their teeth, we will! If they do not want to cooperate at this young age, that's ok too. We can add in additional oral health treatments as they become ready.
We want each dental visit to be fun, educational, and interactive for your child. Setting up a positive foundation can have a lasting impact on the future of their oral health! By starting off on the right foot, they can avoid many common dental conditions associated with childhood.
Prevention is what it is all about! By protecting your child's oral care, you are taking an enormous step toward a healthy future. To schedule your child's appointment, please don't hesitate to give us a call today!
