It is important to prepare young children for a first dental appointment so that regular check-ups become part of day to day life. Dentists recommend that a first appointment should be scheduled when the first teeth start to appear.

To make that first visit to the dentist less stressful:

– Practice brushing and flossing with your child at home

– Use toys to “play dentist” at home

– Choose a pediatric dentist

An experienced pediatric dentist “will help your child feel more comfortable”.
