Infant Dental Care

Your baby should have their first visit with the dentist after their first tooth appears, but no later than their first birthday. This first visit is a ” well- baby ” checkup for your child’s teeth.

At this first visit, your dentist and team will: 

  • Review your child’s health history
  • Do a complete oral exam to check growth and development, oral hygiene, cavities, or other problems
  • Clean the teeth and show you how to properly clean your child’s teeth at home
  • Discuss teething, pacifier use, finger/thumb sucking habits, treatment if needed, and  scheduling the next checkup
