In order to establish good dental habits, it is crucial for your child to have positive experiences with a dentist’s office from an early age. Regular visits to the dentist are one of the most important aspects of dental hygiene, so introducing your child to the routines and procedures of a dental office at a young age is a good idea.
While there is no precise age for a child’s first visit to the dentist, some medical authorities recommend bringing a child in at around one year old or no later than six months after their first tooth comes in. Others recommend waiting until age two or three. Regardless of the exact age, it is best to bring your child in as early as possible.
Dr. Silver can provide more information on what to expect during your child’s first visit to the dentist. This visit is an excellent opportunity for us to get to know your child and for them to become comfortable with us.
