When to do your child's first dental visit!

  • The first dental visit is recommended by 12 months of age, or within 6 months of the first tooth coming in. The first visit often lasts 30 to 45 minutes. Depending on your child's age, the visit may include a full exam of the teeth, jaws, bite, gums, and oral tissues to check growth and development.

What to expect from your Pediatric Dentist!

  • On your first dental visit, the pediatric dentist focuses more on making the child comfortable with the doctor and the environment. They focus on building a friendly bond with the child. Also introduces the child to different functions of the dental chair in a playful manner.
  • The dentist will discuss the importance of oral hygiene with you and your child in hopes of creating good oral habits.
  • If you & the pediatric dentist both feel that your child is comfortable & ready, the dentist will do an oral exam & if required a possible dental x-ray.

Next Visit!

  • The second visit - Just like adults, children should see the dentist every 6 months. The dentist may schedule visits more often, such as every 3 months. This can build comfort and confidence in the child. More frequent visits can also help keep an eye on a development problem.
