How old should my child be for the first visit?

We recommend scheduling your child’s first dental visit when their first tooth erupts or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. Early dental visits are essential for establishing a positive relationship between your child and the dentist. It allows us to monitor your child’s dental development, provide guidance on oral care, and detect any potential issues at an early stage. Starting dental visits at a young age also helps your child become comfortable with dental check-ups, reducing anxiety and promoting lifelong dental health habits.
