Establishing a good attitude toward the dentist at a young age is crucial to having a peaceful dental appointment as an adult. Good habits learned early can provide a lifetime of health benefits.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that children make their first visit to the dentist when their first tooth emerges, or no later than age one. Although baby teeth are not permanent, they serve as a guide for adult teeth and define the future health of your child. Don’t wait until a problem arises with your child’s teeth!
