What You Should Know About Children's Dentistry
When To Bring a Child To Their First Dental Visit:
Most experts suggest that a child see a dentist following their first tooth or before their first birthday. The American Dental Association supports that these early dental visits are preventative in stopping future problems: Early visits can also help your child in the future by establishing a healthy relationship with oral hygiene.
We know that it can be anxiety-inducing to bring a child to a dental visit at such a young age. We encourage you to read about our pediatric dentist and what being a pediatric dentist means to learn more about how they prepare to see children from birth to eighteen years of age:
Finding A Dentist That’s Right For Your Child
It’s important to know that your children are in good hands. We urge you to consider the following when choosing a dentist for your family:
Does the doctor have experience and education in children’s dentistry?
Is the doctor trained in behavior management and child development?
Does the office offer special sedation services for children?
Are additional services for children under 18- such as athletic mouth guards and cosmetic procedures?
Is preventative care offered?
Can the office schedule the whole family for maximum convenience?
Is the experience fun for the child?
For your consideration: We can answer “Yes!” to all of these questions!
