You Child’s First Visit
The most common question we have regarding children is about what age should they start going to the dentist. At Kelty McLaurin Pediatric Dentistry, we follow the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry on when a child should first see a dentist. Accordingly, you should bring your child to see us when the first tooth emerges or by their first birthday, whichever comes first.
During the first dental visit, we will get to know your child and get him/her acquainted with the dental office. During the initial visit, we also evaluate the child’s dental health, as well as offer tips in good dental care for your child. Our goal is to have our youngest patients to feel comfortable and happy about visiting the dentist!
