Dental professionals recommend a child’s first dental appointment be around their 1st birthday. The dentist will check the child’s teeth that have come through for cavities and basic gum health. The parent will also be informed of important tooth and gum care that is to begin as early as possible. The child will also be checked for growth and development of the jaw and facial structure. We will also discuss finger-thumb sucking, pacifiers and preventive care to help your child. Call our office today to schedule the first well baby exam of your toddler today.
