At What Age Should My Child First Visit a Dentist?
We like to see children for a quick check-up soon after their first tooth erupts or by their first birthday. This is just to make sure their teeth are developing normally and is merely a visual examination. We can also provide parents and caregivers with lots of practical information on the best way to care for their child’s baby teeth including how to brush them. We recommend you begin booking regular check-ups from age two onwards. These early visits are unlikely to involve any treatment other than professional cleanings, but are a very good way to help your child become accustomed to visiting a dentist regularly so they are less likely to grow up with any fears or phobias about dental visits.
