When should I bring my child for their dental visit?

We recommend scheduling your child's first dental visit when their baby teeth start to erupt or by the age of 1. It is important to establish a dental home for your child where they start to feel comfortable visiting and having their teeth checked and clean. If you notice dark or chipped areas on your child's teeth, it is important to have them checked to make sure the tooth does not have a cavity. Cavities in baby teeth can lead to tooth infection and pain if left untreated. Schedule your child's visit today and let us know that it is his or her's first visit so we can make it a special day!
