When should my child start seeing a dentist?
It is crucial to bring your child to the dentist around age one, or when their first tooth comes in (erupts). Bringing them in by their first birthday will help your child become comfortable when it comes to visiting the dentist. This will prevent your child from being fearful of future dental appointments.
How often should my child see the dentist?
As their teeth begin to come in, your child should see the dentist twice a year, just like you.
Why is family dentistry important?
By educating your children on how to care for their teeth while they are young, you are establishing a healthy habit for dental success for the rest of their lives. Good dental habits and practices learned in childhood are carried into adulthood. We understand that each child has specific dental needs. We are here not only to provide the highest quality treatment to each member of your family, but also, to educate your child on how to correctly maintain their oral health for years to come.
