The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child’s first dental visit should happen by the time they turn one. Even though a child has only a few baby teeth by this time, this visit is important to set the foundation for proper oral care from an early age.
At Center One Dental, our team cares about your little one’s dental health and that is why we strive to educate parents on the effects of proper nutrition and good hygiene on their child’s oral health.
Our staff takes every possible step to ensure that your child feels relaxed and comfortable at their first dental appointment. Our friendly dental assistants will discuss eating and drinking habits and help you understand how to establish a proper at-home dental care regimen for your child. This will include tips on proper flossing and brushing, dietary habits, and things to avoid. We will also perform a gentle examination of your child’s oral cavity to check for any early signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or any other pathological abnormalities. Treatment suggestions will be provided and a follow-up visit will be arranged, if needed. We also provide informational material for parents to educate them on the best dental care practices for children.
