At What Age Should My Child Visit the Dental Office?

How can I give my child the best dental care possible?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends bringing your child to the dentist before his or her first birthday.

At Royal Dental, your child’s first dental visit will include checking the teeth for decay and an examination to look for early developmental challenges, an explanation on how to care for your child’s teeth and of course to answer any questions or early concerns you might have. With adult supervision, we believe a child should be brushing his or her own teeth by the time your child turns three-years-old.

Teach children the importance of regular professional dental visits and explain to your children that the dentist will help keep their teeth strong and healthy so they can eat.

How often should I bring my child for a visit to the dentist?

“It is very important to get your child to visit a dentist early on in life,” says Dr. Ayeez Lalji, who has more than 17-years of experience and practices in dentistry in the Greater Houston Area. “This will allow your child to feel more comfortable with regular dental visits as he or she grows older.”
One of the great ways to explain the first dental visit for your child is to tell him or her Royal Dental is going to check their smile and count their teeth. By keeping it simple and by bringing your child in for regular 6-month check-ups, your child will enjoy dental visits and will be able to maintain good oral hygiene for years to come.
