First Pediatric Dental Visit
The sooner children begin getting regular dental checkups, the healthier their mouths will stay throughout their lives. Early checkups help prevent cavities and tooth decay, which can lead to pain, trouble concentrating and other medical issues. Youngsters with healthy teeth chew food easily, learn to speak clearly and smile with confidence.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Association of Pediatrics recommends that children have their first dental visit at age 1. This “well baby visit” teaches parents and caregivers how to care for their children’s teeth and help them remain cavity-free. We can provide you with helpful information to ensure that their smile stays beautiful and bright! We can also be a resource if you ever have any questions or concerns. We look forward to helping your child and their smile grow!
