WHAT AGE SHOULD I BRING MY CHILD IN TO SEE THE DENTIST?
We recommend bringing your child in for a dental appointment from an early age, primarily to get them comfortable with the environment. The primary or ‘baby’ teeth are very important as they set the stage for the adult teeth to erupt into the mouth. Problems with the primary teeth can sometimes result in issues with the adult teeth. We believe in preventative care from an early age.
It may be beneficial to first bring your child in whilst you undergo an examination and clean, so they can observe and realize there is nothing to fear. We can also offer you advice on diet and oral hygiene at this early stage. Generally the first visit should be around the age of 18 months – 2 years.
