When Is the Best Time to Bring My Child for their First Dental Visit?
Our office loves to treat children! So many of them are excited to come to the dentist for the first time. But even if your child is apprehensive, we do our best to make their dental visit a great experience.
I recommend bringing your child for their first visit around age 3. You want their first checkup to be fun, so they love coming to the dentist.
We will clean your child’s teeth, take x-rays, and give them a fluoride treatment to strengthen their teeth. We might also recommend sealants to prevent cavities. Most importantly, we will teach your child how to brush and floss properly and teach them the importance of taking care of their teeth.
Regular visits to the dentist are one of the best gifts you can give your child. Prevention is the key to healthy teeth as an adult. So, bring in your little ones….We can’t wait to see them!
