We understand that the dental office isn’t a child’s favorite place to be.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that you bring your child to the dentist for their first visit when their first tooth comes in, which is usually between the ages of 6 and 12 months. By visiting the dentist early, you can better educate yourself on how to care for your child’s teeth to ensure a great start to a lifetime of oral health.
Be sure to help your child clean their teeth with a soft-bristled, child-size toothbrush. To further protect your child’s teeth from decay, Dr. Corey Johnson may suggest dental sealants.
