When should my child first see a dentist?

One of the most common questions that we get is “When should my child first see a dentist?”

According to the American Dental Association, your child’s first dental visit should take place after that first tooth appears, but no later than the first birthday.

Why so early? As soon as your baby has teeth, he or she can get cavities. Being proactive about your child’s dental health today can help keep his or her smile healthy for life.

What Should Parents Typically Expect During The First Visit?

Parents should expect Dr. Jane to look at your child’s teeth and mouth and to have a conversation about the best way to maximize your child’s oral heath and dental care.

This first visit makes families comfortable with their dental home and helps answer any of your questions.

How To Prepare For Your Child’s First Visit?

It is best to start preparing early!

Talk to your child about what will happen at the first appointment, and have them practicing opening his or her mouth for when Dr. Jane counts and checks their teeth.

In addition, reading books or watching videos about first dental visits can help your child be better prepared and less fearful.
