At what age should my children first see a dentist?
We like to see children in our office by the age of three or four so that we can anticipate the development of their overall bite and dental development prior to the emergence of permanent teeth. At this young age, we can recognize and take steps to prevent potential problems. Bring your child to your checkup so that he or she can become familiar with our office. We'll just introduce ourselves and play tour guide around the office. Then, on your child's first real visit, we will treat him or her gently and with special care, ensuring the experience is positive and non-threatening. Of course, if your toddler accidentally chips or knocks out a tooth prior to age three or four, you should let us know right away.
