When should my child first visit a dentist?
Children should begin regular dental visits around their first birthday, according to recommendations from the AAPD (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry). Starting healthy dental habits at a young age will help detect and treat any issues early and even help avoid later problems.
How frequently should my child visit the dentist?
It’s recommended that your child make regular visits to the dentist every 6 months to detect and lower the risk of cavities and regulate your child’s preventive care. The benefits to regular visits for children are many, including detecting dental problems and removing plaque which can cause bad breath and even gum infection.
