The American Association of Pediatric Dentistry recommends bringing your child to the dentist by their first birthday. Some people might think its silly to bring a child to the dentist that only has a few teeth but there are many reasons its a good idea.
1. Getting them comfortable with dentistry at a young age. By the time they start remembering their visits it will be such a habit they won’t be fearful of the dentist.
2. Catching problems early. Cavities don’t only attack adult teeth, baby teeth are susceptible too. The sooner a cavity is caught and taken care of the smaller and less painful it will be for the child.
3. We are fun! Where else do they get to ride up and down in the chair, play with Mr. Thirsty and leave with prizes?
