When should children start going to the dentist?
It’s never too early to think about oral health. Bring your child in to see us at age one, or within six months of cutting their first tooth. This will allow your child to get used to coming to the dentist and learning about the importance of dental hygiene. It’s also never too late to think about oral health, so no matter what the age of your child, bring them in for their first check-up.
