Your child’s first dental visit is an opportunity to start good habits. He or she is ready to visit the dentist once all their baby teeth have come in–don’t wait until there’s a problem to schedule that first appointment. Children between the ages of 3 and 5 make great patients.
Their fist visit to the dentist is designed to get them comfortable with the experience. They will meet the dentist and the hygienist, learn about the tools that will be used, and get some advice on brushing. Depending on the nature of the visit, your son or daughter may receive x-rays and a cleaning. Our experienced team wants to help them understand the importance of oral hygiene and teach them how to take care of their teeth.
By bringing children in when they are young, parents can prepare them for a lifetime of positive visits to the dentist. If you have any questions, or you would like to schedule an appointment for yourself or your child, contact us.
