We recommend that your children come to visit us when their first tooth begins to appear. This is typically around six months, but no later than one year of age. These early visits, help prevent childhood cavities and help educate caregivers about proper oral hygiene for infants and toddlers. We will make sure to show you proper teeth cleaning methods and other home dental care practices you and your child can practice.

A child’s first oral health exam at a dentist office is an effective way to begin a lifelong program of preventative dentistry and good health.

We have put together a few videos below to help you understand some common things to know about the importance of regular dental care for children:
