When should my child first see a dentist?

    Your child should visit the dentist by his/her first birthday. Early examination and preventive care will protect your child’s smile now and in the future, and get them used to going to the dentist. We are trying to build good health habits and that’s what we start with at that first visit. You and your child will learn about diet, nutrition, tooth brushing and flossing. That’s right – Flossing.
