YOUR CHILD'S FIRST DENTAL VISIT

  Parents should take their children to the dentist for their first check-up after their first birthday. Subsequently, they should go for regular dental check-ups every 6 to 12 months, so your child’s dentist can monitor their oral hygiene, diet and growth patterns. It is best if your child’s first experience occurs at a time before invasive dental work becomes necessary. A ride on the dental chair, magic tricks with “Mr. Thirsty” and visiting the toy chest should make your child’s visit pleasurable and non-threatening. The first visit should also include the counting of teeth while your child looks at what is happening in a hand held mirror. Remember, early dental check-ups makes it easier to build a good rapport with your child to establish a foundation of trust and comfort for future visits.
