& Happy Families

When should I bring my child for their first dental visit?

We recommend that you bring your child’s first visit to our Vinton dental office occur by age three, or as soon as they have all their baby teeth.

It is critical to your child’s future oral health that we start them off with regular dental visits. We want your child to have a positive feeling about seeing the dentist, and the purpose of the first few visits is to allow your child get used to us and their new surroundings.

Once we’ve established a friendly relationship with your child, we will start to perform more in-depth exams. This lets us monitor the progress of their development and also helps us detect any small problems. The sooner we catch and correct these problems, the better your child’s chance of having healthy teeth.

We know that your child’s dental visits can be stressful as you worry about how they’re going to respond. You can rest assured that Dr. Law and our entire dental team are sensitive to your child’s unique needs. We will do everything possible to put you and your child both at ease during your visit.

If you would like to get your child started on the road to excellent oral health, please contact our Vinton dental office. We will be happy to help you schedule that all-important first visit.
