When and why should my child go to the dentist?

boy pretending to brush teethAlthough we are not specialists in pediatric dentistry, we are family dentists who enjoy treating all ages. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child visit a dentist as soon as your child’s baby teeth begin to erupt, at about 6 months of age. A healthy baby needs healthy teeth, and the best way to ensure that is to start good oral hygiene practices early. Frequent dental visits and good at-home care are the best way to prevent cavities and other oral diseases.

If we can detect certain signs and symptoms early, we can help prevent potential issues with oral and overall health, growth and development, and behavior. We try to create a happy and positive environment for kids of all ages. At Current Dentistry, our goal is to create an experience that will stay with our patients for a lifetime. We take pride in always striving to be the best dentist for you and your family.

What can I expect for the first pediatric appointment?

Today’s dentistry allows for shaping a generation that enjoys going to the dentist. Ideally, our first visit establishes a relationship between the child and our team and invests time making the new experience a positive experience. While we will usually clean the child’s teeth and complete an exam, some children require a slow approach. This visit will be tailored to each child.
