Your child’s first dental visit should be scheduled around his/her first birthday. By the age of 1 we can begin checking for signs of proper development and creating positive associations with visiting the dentist.
The first visit for children younger than 3 years of age is often on a parent’s lap as children often feel more comfortable being close to a familiar face. The most important part of your child’s first visit is to get to know us and become comfortable with Dr. Kevin, Dr Emmy and our team. A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future dental visits. We will discuss; the appropriate time to introduce fluoride toothpaste, provide anticipatory guidance, discuss positive oral health habits and teach your son or daughter the importance of healthy teeth and gums. One of our goals is to make our practice a place of education for your family so your child can become independently healthy.
