The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a child see a dentist by their first birthday. The purpose of the first year dental visit is to learn about your child's oral health and how to best care for your child's unique needs before any problems occur. We always welcome parents to bring their child in for a chair ride to get them comfortable with the dentist at an early age.
When Dr. Robertson is able to see your little one from a young age, it helps to create the foundation for a healthy dental future. When childhood dental problems are detected early, more expensive and complex treatment could be avoided later.
Additionally, bringing your little one to the dentist at a young age helps them to become accustomed to the sights and sounds of the dental office. When it is included as part of their regular healthcare routine, the dentist does not seem like a strange or scary place.
