We recommend that your child be seen by a dentist before they are 18 months of age. During your child’s first visit, the dentist and hygienist will do their possible to make your child feel comfortable and establish rapport. During the exam, we will check all the existing teeth as well as clean them. We will then go over together proper brushing and flossing techniques.
Studies show that half the population is apprehensive when going to the dentist. Please take care to avoid expressing or showing this to your child. Reassuring communication with your child is essential to build your child’s trust in the dentist and the dental office. Your full cooperation is very important before, during and after their first visit.
