When you have a young child or loved one in your care there are many exciting milestones that are celebrated. This time of year is always a time of great excitement for those with young children. We think there is another exciting time in a young child’s life that we need to mention — their first dentist appointment. You might be surprised to learn that we recommend that a child visit our office for the first time no later than their first birthday. So, while you are planning the party, birthday pictures, and cake smash, be sure to call our office to schedule an appointment. We know that visiting the dentist can be a bit intimidating for the little ones (and sometimes their parents too), so we wanted to offer some tips to help make their first experience a little easier.
