We like to see children around their first birthday or when their first tooth erupts, as recommended by the American Dental Association.
That’s an excellent time to check the development of teeth, examine the oral cavity and check their bite. At this appointment, we discuss feeding habits, oral habits (pacifiers and thumb sucking), oral hygiene and other information to start your baby toward positive dental care.
One adult is invited back during the initial exam and at recall appointments. This allows us to discuss our findings and any treatment that may be necessary.
Providing parents information is part of our commitment to helping you care for your child’s oral health at home. Establishing a good oral hygiene regime is vital to a child’s development. We want to ensure every child achieves a healthy, beautiful smile throughout their life.
Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for your child as soon as possible.
