Age 1 Dental Visit

Young child in dental office, When to see a dentist?

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association, your child should first see a pediatric dentist by the time they turn one or by the eruption of their first tooth; whichever happens to come first.

What to Expect?

At your child’s first dental visit, not much will be done as far as dental procedures go. Instead, we’ll get your child used to sitting in the chair and familiar with the staff and Dr. Naomi Lane. We will brush your child’s teeth, make sure they’re erupting properly and on time, and attempt to make your child feel at home. We know that this can be an overwhelming experience for your little one, and it’s important to us that we provide a comfortable atmosphere. We want our office to be a place that your child looks forward to, not a place that she fears.

In addition to getting to know your child, we’ll also spend this first visit getting to know you and any of the questions or concerns you may have about your child’s dental health. We believe that the more questions you ask and the more knowledge you receive, the better you’ll be able to care for your child’s dental health.

Here at Piedmont Pediatric Dentistry, we strive to make each appointment fun and educational for both you and your child.
