What to Expect During Your Child’s First Dental Visit
We Believe in an Early Beginning
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that children be seen starting at age one. More than one in four children in the United States have cavities by the time they are four years old, sometimes as early as age two. To prevent early childhood cavities, the use of fluoride, thumb sucking, teething, and the relationship between diet and oral health are discussed at this early visit.
Your Child’s First Visit
Dental visits are a source of fear for so many children and adults that taking some time to get your child on a really positive start is worth some thought. Creating a great first experience may do your child a service that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
