The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that children see a pediatric dentist by one year of age.
Visiting a pediatric dentist by the first birthday enables the child to find a dental home and begin a lifelong of preventive dental care program to minimize tooth decay and cavities. Pediatric dentists can detect early tooth decay, provide parents with information on proper oral and facial development, and determine fluoride needs and more.
For a child, a trip to the dentist is a trip into the unknown and can be frightening. Therefore, it is important to ease any stress they may feel with a warm, friendly environment and a staff who are acutely aware of the need to welcome children with warmth and smiles.
