At what age should I start taking my child to see the dentist?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children first see a dentist as early as six months old and no later than one year old.
Your baby’s teeth may begin to arrive around the age of 4 to 8 months, and Dr. Boren can ensure the health of your child's first teeth. These first visits also help us acclimate your child to our office so they don’t feel scared or nervous about visiting the dentist. You may also want to bring your little one along on your own dental check-ups so they can get used to the sights and sounds of our office.
We understand how important these first visits are for your child to have future success at their dental appointments. For this reason, we strive to keep their time with us pleasant, upbeat, and fun!
We want your child to learn about the importance of their oral health and also look forward to visiting us. Making sure they feel comfortable and at ease is our top priority, and we can even use nitrous oxide for children who need a little extra TLC.
Contact us today to schedule your child's next appointment and discuss their oral health.
