When should I take my child to the dentist?

We recommend bringing your child in to see the dentist before they turn 1 year old. This first appointment is extremely important for the parents to learn how best to take care of your children’s teeth and make the dental office more familiar to the child.

You should expect their baby teeth to start coming in at around 6 months of age and they should all be in by around age 3. They should start losing their first baby teeth at around age 6 and will continue replacing the baby teeth with adult teeth until age 12.

It is critical to build good dental habits from a very early age. The health and maintenance of your child’s baby teeth will determine the health of their adult teeth, which should last them a lifetime.  Book your child’s first appointment today.
