When should you take your child for their first dental check-up?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a child’s first dental visit occur around the time their first tooth appears, typically around 6 months old. This may seem young for a dental visit, however your baby’s teeth are very important to their overall healthy development. Baby teeth are small, so little issues can become big problems very quickly so we recommend an early visit so we can catch little issues early when simple changes can correct them.

We NEVER like to to let ANY of our patients wait for long in our waiting area, however as parents we know that waiting with kids is especially hard! We provide a special area for our youngest patients complete with coloring books and toys so that Mom and Dad can relax and fill out paperwork without worrying what the kids are getting into

The No Sugar Bugs Club
Our No Sugar Bugs Clubs provides an extra reward for children who have done a great job of taking care of their teeth and do not have any cavities. Children get to place their name on our No Sugar Bugs Club tree and are entered into a monthly drawing.
