The Australasian and American Academy of Paediatric Dentistry recommends the first dental visit when the first tooth erupts or by the age of 1 year. Children will have the best chance of preventing dental problems by establishing an oral hygiene routine at home at an early age.
You can play a large part in preparing your child for their first visit to the dentist. Relax, as any anxiety on your part will probably be sensed by your child. Tell your child that we will “count” their teeth. Avoid fear-provoking words such as “pull” and “needle”, and statements such as “the doctor will not hurt you.”
Our dentists are all happy to welcome and treat young kids. If you have any questions regarding your child and dental treatment, please do not hesitate to call us.
