When should children visit the dentist??
Kids should visit the dentist twice per year, just like adults. The American Dental Association recommends that a baby’s first dentist appointment be scheduled around their first birthday or when their first tooth grows in, whichever happens first. If your child ever needs to see a dentist outside of their scheduled visits, our office accepts same-day emergency appointments. Establishing a dental home for your child helps ensure that they are creating positive dental habits and taking care of their teeth from a young age, which will help them now and in the future!
