  • What age should my child visit the dentist?

    The American Dental Association recommends scheduling your child’s first dental visit within six months of the baby’s first tooth appearing before the child’s first birthday. 

  • How can I help my child prevent cavities?

    Encouraging good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing daily, is essential. Regular dental check-ups, cleanings, and a balanced diet low in sugary snacks and drinks are crucial in cavity prevention.

  • What can I expect during my child's first dental visit?

    During the first visit, our dentist will gently examine your child’s teeth and gums, checking for any signs of decay. We will also discuss proper brushing and flossing techniques and answer any questions you may have about your child’s oral health.
