It is strongly suggested the first visit to the dentist takes place within 6 months following the eruption of the first tooth. This means your child should visit us around one year of age. This being said, it is better to come and meet us when your child is able to cooperate.
During the first appointment, the dentist and dental hygienist will put your child at ease, examine and clean his teeth and review brushing and flossing techniques with you.
It is estimated that 50% of the population is afraid of dentists. It is important for parents not to transmit this fear to their children. Do not minimize your kid’s fears and bear with him. Information and a positive attitude will reassure your child and determine his attitude in the future.
Your collaboration is important before, during and after the visit. The first visit aims to familiarize the child with the environment and create bonds and trust between the dentist and him.
