Your Child’s First Visit
For our youngest patients, we create a positive experience and focus on educating the parents and child on good oral hygiene and dietary habits. We recommend exams begin as soon as the first tooth erupts, but no later than the first birthday. Learn more about Baby Well Dental visits.
First Teeth Cleaning
While we recommend dental checkups occur every six months, “typical” cleanings usually begin around age 3 or sooner, depending on the child’s comfort level in the dental chair.
