When Should My Child First Visit the Dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association both encourage parents to schedule their first visit to the dentist by their child’s first birthday or within six months of the emergence of their first tooth, whichever comes first. 

Preparing For Your Child’s First Visit to the Dentist

We encourage you to schedule your first appointment at a time when your child will be well-rested and comfortable in order to give them the best chance to make a positive first association with the dentist office.

Prepare for the visit by explaining to your child a little about where you’re going before you arrive at the office. Talk to them about how important it is to keep their mouth clean and healthy, and how visits to the dentist office help them do that. Keep a positive, fun attitude, and help your child look forward to visits to the dentist!

Please also complete any new patient forms, such as medical history or insurance information, that are sent to you prior to your appointment. This will help ensure that we can get right to the appointment when you arrive at the office.

What to Expect at Your Child’s First Visit to the Dentist

Tour the office and meet the team: You and your child will meet our friendly, compassionate, and knowledgeable doctor and team members and get a look around the office. We’ll take you into the exam room and explain the technology and tools that we use in our exams, cleanings, and treatments. It’s important to create a level of familiarity and comfort with the office and our team right from the start.

Your child’s first exam and cleaning: We’ll examine your child’s mouth to assess their growth and development and administer a gentle cleaning catered to their age and the progress of their teeth.

Dental health education and prevention: Our approach to treatment centers around education and prevention. Our team will provide you with tips to help take care of your child’s oral health at home, including brushing and flossing at different stages of growth and healthy nutrition habits. An early start to healthy habits will keep your child’s smile bright as they grow up!

We can’t wait to meet your family! If you need to schedule your child’s first dental appointment or have any questions before your visit, call our office today. We’re here to help with anything you need as you prepare for a life of big smiles!

I brought my son to his first dental appointment ever here. Dr Chang is very caring, patient and gentle with her patients. My little boy didn’t even cry during this visit! The office is very clean, modern, new and the office staff is wonderful. I highly recommend Dr Chang and this location for all your pediatric dentistry needs 🙂 They validate parking at the McBee parking garage.
