As a parent, you want the most for your child, and that means making sure they’re visiting proficient medical professionals who will see to attaining the child’s greatest health. We regularly get asked by concerned parents when they should begin bringing their children into our office for routine dental checkups.

We suggest that you bring your baby into our office for their first dental checkup within six months of their first tooth erupting or before their first birthday. Visiting the dentist will hamper your child’s likelihood of making cavities from plaque collection. Your dentist will treat your child’s baby chompers, which are crucial placeholders for adult chompers, and they will help your child’s teeth progress into a healthy oral cavity that will strengthen their dental and overall health for the rest of their life. And setting the standard of awesome dental care early will support your child to set the habits they need to keep a healthy oral cavity throughout their life.
