We welcome patients of all ages to our Jonesboro, AR dental office. We begin seeing kids at about the age of three. It is important to bring your child to the dentist at a young age for several reasons.
Early dental visits help them get used to the sights and sounds of the dental office. When you bring your child in when they are very young, their appointment will be a good way to allow them to get used to our team and the dental office environment. We can familiarize them with our treatment rooms, the sound the suction makes, and even take them for a ride in the chair.
Your child benefits from early childhood dental exams and cleanings because we will monitor their health and make sure that they are developing on schedule, as well as checking for common conditions such as dental decay and gum disease. Even very young children are susceptible to both.
When you start your little one at the dentist at a young age, dental care becomes a routine part of their health regimen, making it easier to maintain good oral health as they get older. Once they reach a certain age, we can do an orthodontic evaluation to determine if your little one will need orthodontics.
