The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists recommend that a child be seen by a dentist when their first tooth comes in. We feel this is a little to early and recommend bringing your child in somewhere between 1 and 2 years of age. While little may be accomplished at first, it can allow us to provide a gross examination to make sure nothing is significantly our of order and allow us to start building a favorable opinion of the child. Over time we will build trust with the child and introduce them to all parts of dentistry at whatever pace is right for them.
The first visit is not something to be afraid of and is something we hope you and your child will love!
