When to Schedule Your Child’s Dental Visit:

The American Dental Association recommends that parents schedule their child’s first dental visit around their first birthday or within six months of their first tooth erupting. These initial visits are crucial for establishing a positive relationship with the dentist and monitoring your child’s oral development.

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential for children to maintain healthy smiles. We recommend scheduling visits every six months. These appointments allow us to assess your child’s oral health, provide professional cleanings, and address any emerging issues promptly.

Common Dental Concerns for Children

Children may encounter several dental concerns that require attention and care. These include: 

  • Tooth Decay: Children are susceptible to tooth decay, also known as cavities. Regular dental visits help identify and treat cavities early, preventing further damage.
  • Cavities: Dental cavities can develop quickly in children due to sugar consumption and inadequate oral hygiene. Our team specializes in gentle and effective cavity treatments.
  • Gum Disease: While less common in children, gum disease can occur. We educate parents and children on proper oral hygiene to prevent gum issues.
