A Great First Time For Your Child’s Dental Future

Having a great first visit at a dentist can help you feel confident and secure, rather than frightened or nervous about returning. One especially important first visit is the visit of your child.


Parents often ask us when they should first bring in their child to the dentist. A specific age can’t be given as it depends upon each child, but a normal timeframe is between their first and second year of age. This is because children’s teeth have begun to develop below their gum – even earlier than they are born! The teething process and the configuration of their facial bones can be checked and watched if you bring them for early dental visits.

This means that they’ll get used to the dentist office and see you happily having your teeth inspected. It’s not unusual that patients’ children then want theirs checked too!

So what to expect on their first visit? A child will generally need a quick examination to make sure the teeth and gums are healthy and that teeth can be expected to progress normally. This is usually just a visual scan and will take five to ten minutes.
