When Should Your First Dentist Appointment Be?

First dental appointment for kids


Most children do not have their first visit with a dentist until over the age of three.

“The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that a child go to the dentist by age 1 or within six months after the first tooth erupts. Primary teeth typically begin growing in around 6 months of age.”

As a pediatric dental office we follow strict guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and we want everyone to know the importance of baby teeth and the role they play in developing healthy adult teeth.

We have found this article for you that has some good tips and guidelines about the first appointment and beyond.
