We recommend children visit the dentist at approximately 2 years of age. On your child’s first visit, they will meet with one of our dental staff and we make sure it is a fun adventure for them.
Your child may not wish to sit in the chair on their first visit and that is OK, trust takes time. They may feel more secure on your lap where we count their teeth together. Some children bring a teddy to join in on the fun, and most importantly we have a staff of caring ladies that ensure your child has a positive association with the dentist and hygienist especially on their first visit.
Prior to their first visit, why not bring your child in with you while you have your teeth cleaned. This introduces them to the dentist in a relaxed and safe environment. We may even give them a ride in the chair.
