The American Dental Association recommends that a child’s first visit to the family dentist occur within six months after the baby’s first tooth appears, and no later than the baby’s first birthday. It is important to establish good oral hygiene habits from a young age. Good oral health can reduce the risk of cavities as a child grows and can increase the likelihood of healthy permanent teeth. Strong healthy teeth contribute to a child’s overall health, and help a child chew and speak. A healthy smile can also help boost a child’s confidence.
