Provide ADA essential brochures to the parents of your youngest patients! Set up your child for a lifetime of healthy smiles by starting dental visits early. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association recommend that your child’s first visit to the dentist happens when their first tooth appears but no later than their first birthday. Baby teeth can start to decay as soon as they come in. It is important that your child is as comfortable as possible with their dentist so they develop healthy habits. This first visit is a “well-baby checkup” for your child’s teeth. It’s best for your child to have a pleasant first meeting with the dentist. Don’t wait until pain or an emergency comes up to introduce them to the dental office. First visit by first birthday Tips for your child’s first dental visit If possible, schedule an appointment for a time when your child tends to be rested and cooperative. Don’t schedule during nap time. Stay positive. Don’t show any anxiety that you might feel about dental visits. Never bribe your child to go to the dentist or use the visit as a punishment or threat. Make your child’s dental visit an enjoyable outing. Teaching your child good oral hygiene habits early can lead to a lifetime of good dental health.
