In our office we tell parents to make dental appointments for their children at age one or six months after their first tooth comes in. As soon as the tooth breaks through the gums it needs to be properly cared for so this first visit is crucial!
“Good dental health begins in infancy, and that early attention to oral hygiene and care can mean strong teeth and gums as children become young adults and seniors.”
