Many parents ask at what age they should begin bringing their children to the office for dental visits. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry states that the first dental visit for a child should be six months after the eruption of his/her first tooth or one year of age, whichever comes first. It is just as important to educate and inform new parents about hygiene habits for children as much as it is to evaluate the child's oral condition. Our office is very happy to see children at a young age and we encourage children to watch Mom and Dad sit in the chair during dental visits. If you have any questions please feel free to contact our office.
