We recommend that you bring your child to see a children’s dentist around their first birthday. Baby teeth fall out, but before that, they are important as they hold space for permanent teeth.
We recommend “Happy Visits” for all young children. Their purpose is to allow your child to become familiar with our team and the new environment. There are new people, unfamiliar sights and sounds, and lots of scary-looking equipment. So, at this point, our goal is to ease them gently into the idea of visiting the dentist.
We’ll have your child relax in your lap, so they will feel less afraid during their first dental visit.
If your son or daughter feels comfortable, we’ll examine the mouth to make sure everything is developing correctly.
We will discuss good ways to brush, healthy food choices, and how using a bottle can impact your child’s teeth.
We make it a point to involve you both in the process. Helping your child enjoy excellent dental health is easy when you both understand the importance of proper oral health habits.
