At what age should I take my child to see the dentist?

It may seem absurd to take your toothless little one into a dental office. However, this is a critical time in your child’s development.

Why These Early Appointments are Important

  1. Parent and guardian dental education is the main focus of the appointment. Most childhood dental issues can be prevented with the right habits that start even before your child begins to get teeth.
  2. Early exposure and regular visits to the dentist can help your little one get comfortable in the dental chair. If any dental treatment is ever needed during your child’s development, it can mean the difference between a quick and easy fix and having to get sedated for treatment.
