When should my child have their first dental visit?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), American Dental Association (ADA) and the American Academy of Pediatrics all recommend a dental visit for children by age one. If this sounds early, consider this! Studies show that children who have their first dental visit before age one have 40 percent lower dental costs in their first five years than children who do not, and are less likely to require restorative and emergency dental visits. Your child's first dental visit at Premier Dental can spark a lifetime of proper dental health, so schedule that appointment as early as possible!
My child is scared of the dentist, help!
Visiting the dentist can be a uncertain situation for some of young patients. Before your appointment, try discussing the event with your child and learning about dentists through books, television shows, or attending a sibling's appointment. On the day of the appointment, make sure your child is well-rested and not hungry. Once you arrive at Premier Dental, our friendly pediatric dentists will help make sure their experience is an enjoyable one!
