First visit

The American Dental Association recommends that children visit the dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep their teeth and gums healthy.

We also want to do a comprehensive exam to ensure your child’s oral cavity is healthy and free of any infections, congenital anomalies or other defects/pathology. Research as shown that children seen by a dentist routinely at a very young age are at a greatly reduced risk for developing dental decay. Also, if we are able to identify decay at the very beginning of its formation we can discuss ways of preventing it from progressing so we may never have to treat it.
