When is my child ready to see the dentist?
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that children visit the dentist every six months for a cleaning and evaluation. This is recommended as it provides an opportunity for children to build a trusting relationship with their dentist over time, significantly reducing the chances that a child will develop dental anxieties. Our team has the chairside manners and a gentle touch to make children comfortable when they visit, making every appointment a positive experience. Children should start visiting the dentist as soon as they develop their first tooth through the gumline. If this does not happen by age one, an appointment can be made to evaluate the child and ensure the development of the smile is on track.
