As a new parent, you’ve got a lot going on. But oral health is important for people of all ages, and that includes toddlers and kids, too. So you may be wondering, when should you take your child to the dentist for the first time?
The answer may surprise you! In this blog from All Kids Dentistry, we’ll go over when your child should see the dentist for the first time, discuss the importance of choosing the right pediatric dentist in Valencia, and go over some tips on preparing for your little one’s first appointment. Let’s get into it!
According to the Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, your child should see the dentist for the first time when they get their first tooth, or when they turn one year old, whichever comes first. That’s our recommendation at All Kids Dentistry, too! If your child has their first tooth or has had their first birthday, it’s time to bring them in to visit Dr. Laura Greenwald.
But don’t worry. Even if your child is older than this, now is the best time to start taking them to the dentist. Whether they're two, three, four, or even older, it’s always best to start getting six-month checkups as soon as possible. Get in touch with Al Kids Dentistry today. We’re always accepting new patients in Valencia, CA and the surrounding areas!
