We are often asked from new parents when should their child first visit the dentist?
Generally, children should see the dentist after their first birthday as an introduction to the office and to provide a preliminary examination of their teeth and gums. We may clean their teeth with topical fluoride and show parents a proper oral care and hygiene routine that they can administer at home.
A first visit to the dentist includes:
- Examine mouth and gums
- Evaluate adverse habits like thumb sucking
- Check to see if fluoride is necessary
- Teach proper teeth, gum and tongue cleaning
- Suggest a schedule for regular dental visits
