Kids’ Dentistry FAQs
When should kids first go to the dentist?
Your child should visit the dentist after their first tooth erupts or by their 1st birthday, whichever comes first.
How often should kids go to the dentist?
Children should visit the dentist every six months, just like adults. If they are complaining about abnormal pain or you notice a change in their oral health, additional appointments may be necessary.
How do I keep my child calm at the dentist?
If you have an anxious little one, we offer a variety of sedation options to keep them at ease while we work. If possible, bringing along an older sibling who is comfortable with the dentist often helps to set an example and make them feel more relaxed.
