Your child should come in for their first dental visit by the time they turn two, if not earlier. The first appointment is meant to be a fun and positive experience and it’s important that you don’t wait until issues are present before bringing your child to the clinic.
It’s best if their first visit is entirely pleasant and we call it their Happy Visit. Your child will enjoy riding in the chair, we’ll “count” their teeth and we have a great kids giveaway box for after every appointment. If everything is going well, we may be able to polish their teeth as well.
Simply coming into the clinic at a young age, sitting in the chair and meeting our team can make a difference in your child’s comfort level at future appointments. Of course, it also gives us an early opportunity to look at your child’s teeth and discuss the best practices for caring for their teeth.
We’ll also spend time answering your questions, because we’re sure you’ll have some, and we want to ensure you leave our clinic feeling confident in how to care for your little ones teeth and gums.
