Looking For a Pediatric Dentist?
Maintaining your child’s dental health now will provide health benefits well into adulthood.
Your Child’s First Teeth
Your Child’s First Dental Appointment
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child see a dentist by his/her first birthday. This may sound early, but learning proper pediatric oral hygiene techniques, checking for cavities and watching for developmental problems is extremely important.
There are a number of forms of tooth decay that can affect babies and small children. Early Childhood Caries (tooth decay) can develop rapidly, and it’s important for your child to have a positive experience at the dental office as he/she will be a regular visitor for years to come.
