Preparing Your Child For Their First Dental Visit

There are many exciting milestones that occur during your child’s early years of life. During the first year in particular, it seems like each day brings something new to celebrate and document as a special memory. Aside from the typical excitement of the first steps and first words, there is another exciting first that should happen during the first year — the first dental appointment. You may be surprised to learn that children should visit the dentist for the first time around their first birthday or near the eruption of their first teeth. We know that the events of the past two years may have made it difficult to bring your child in for their dental visit. Even if your child is older, there is no time like the present to make their first appointment.
