As a parent, you want the best for your child, and that means ensuring that they’re receiving treatment from reputable medical professionals who will see to achieving the child’s greatest health. We regularly get asked by parents when they should begin bringing their infants into our office for routine dental appointments.

We suggest you bring your child into our office for their first oral checkup within half of a year of their first tooth erupting or before their first birthday, whichever happens first. Visiting the dentist will decrease your child’s probability of creating cavities from plaque stockpiling. Your dentist will care for your child’s baby pearly whites, which are imperative placeholders for adult chompers, and they will help your child’s teeth progress into a healthy mouth that will benefit their oral and overall health for the rest of their life. And setting the standard of great oral care early will assist your child to form the habits they need to retain a healthy mouth throughout their life.
