Your child’s first dental visit should be scheduled around his or her first birthday. One of the most important reasons for this visit is to familiarize your child with the dental office environment and to ease any anxiety associated with future visits.
During this time, Dr. Wade or Dr. Shealy can examine your little one’s dental development and address dental issues such as baby bottle decay, or any teething tenderness, while providing preventive care when needed. On this first visit, a gentle but thorough examination will be performed to monitor growth and development and address any problem areas.
Early examination provides your son or daughter with preventive dental care while establishing healthy dental habits at an early age. Ensure that your youngster’s future smile is a healthy, confident one.
