Your Child’s First Dental Visit
Your child’s first dental visit should be scheduled around his/her first birthday. By the age of 1 we can begin checking for signs of proper development and creating positive associations with visiting the dentist. The most important part of your child’s first visit is to get to know us and become comfortable with Dr. Hines, Dr. Anderson, Dr. Norman, and Dr. Martinez and our team. A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future dental visits. We will provide anticipatory guidance, discuss positive oral health habits and teach your son or daughter the importance of healthy teeth and gums. One of our goals is to make our practice a place of education for your family so your child can become independently healthy.
Proper nutrition is also imperative to your child’s dental health, so click here to read Why a Good Diet is Important for Your Child’s Teeth.
