When should I schedule my child’s first dental visit?

Good question! According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, your child should visit the dentist by their 1st birthday. You can make the first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive, and we can help! Talk with your child about the visit and let them know our staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions. The more you discuss the visit with your child before you arrive, the better. It is best if you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as needle, pull, drill or hurt. Our office makes a practice of using words that convey the same message, but are pleasant and non-frightening to the child. Give us a call with any questions or concerns…we’re here for ya! 😉
