Your Child's First Visit

Contact us

Your child’s early oral health is so important for their ongoing development! Children should see our dentist before their first birthday. You might wonder why so early, but just like adults, there’s so much more to oral health than just pearly white teeth.

Having a “well visit” with your child and our dentist allows them to connect at an early age, establishing a “dental home” where they can receive the proper care for years to come. Our dentist is then able to watch your child’s development and get familiar with their needs!

Benefits of Seeing a Pediatric Dentist

Taking your child to see a pediatric-specific dentist is essential to giving them the best care possible. Our pediatric dentist went through schooling and training to work with children in particular. They take additional measures to help your child feel at home while looking out for child-specific dental issues.

What Will Happen During My Child’s First Dental Visit?
