When Should My Kids Start Visiting the Dentist?

Starting off your children with the right dental habits from a young age is essential to maintaining good oral health into adulthood. Children are never too young to come to the dentist. It is important for your child to build a positive relationship with dentistry and not be afraid. However early you choose to start exposing your child to the dentist, it is important for them to have regular cleanings and examinations by the time their permanent adult teeth start coming in. Our team will work with you and your child to create a calm atmosphere and positive experience regardless of how old your child is.

Routine dental visits as your child grows are important for more than just the health of their teeth. Their dentist will also keep an eye on other factors such as the development of their facial skeleton and their airways. This is crucial in detecting sleep apnea early before it affects their brain.

We pride ourselves on being a family-friendly office! Our office is designed to make your child’s visit fun, friendly, and comfortable. If your child is in need of preventive or restorative dentistry, you’ve come to the right place!
