"When should I bring my child in for their first visit?"
We hear this question quite often from parents.
The first dental visit is recommended by 12 months of age, or within 6 months of the first tooth coming in.
A baby is at risk for tooth decay as soon as the first tooth emerges. During the first visit, the dentist will help parents implement a preventative strategy to protect the teeth from harm, and also demonstrate how infant teeth should be brushed and flossed.
