Welcome to Our Pediatric Dentistry Office
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association and American Academy of Pediatrics all agree that children should begin to visit a pediatric dentist no later than their first birthday. Although this might seem young, it is extremely important that newly erupted primary teeth receive proper dental care from the very beginning.
Initial appointments are primarily used to help educate parents on proper cleaning methods, to discuss nutritional information, to create a plan in case of future dental trauma, and simply to begin familiarizing children with the dentist and dental office.
It’s been shown that non-threatening visits at an early age also help to build your child’s confidence, provide a foundation for hygiene awareness and begin to create a trusting relationship between your child and our dental team.
