It's never too early to develop good oral hygiene.

When should children start seeing the dentist? It might be earlier than you think! Within 6 months of your child's first tooth errupting-- or by about 1 year old-- it's time to schedule their first dental exam!

Our team is specially trained to make visiting the dentists a pleasant experience for little ones and help them start developing good oral hygiene habits early.

Elizabeth Wakim's dental practice offers comprehensive dental care for the entire family. We begin both pediatric and adult dental appointments with a medical history, which helps us create an individualized care plan and ensure that any dental health concern-- no matter how minor-- is caught in its earliest stages. Pediatric and adult dental checkups also include a thorough tooth and gum examination, teeth cleaning, and oral cancer screenings.

Common Questions

When should I make my child's first dentist appointment?

Starting to develop your child's dental health is important from a young age. We recommend parents schedule their child's first dental exam within 6 months of their first tooth errupting, or around 1 year of age.

How often does my child need to see the dentist?

Regular dental checkups and routine teeth cleanings are an important part of dental health for grown ups and kids alike. The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry agree that patients should visit the dentist every 6 months to keep their teeth and gums looking (and feeling!) their best.

What can I do to keep my child's teeth healthy between dental checkups?

Proper dental care doesn't stop when you leave the dentist's office! Between visits, there are several things you can do to help your child develop good oral hygiene. Here are a few of our top recommendations:

  • Your child isn't the only one who loves sugary snacks-- the oral bacteria that can lead to cavities and other dental issues also thrive on sugar. Limiting sugary snacks is a great way to stop oral bacteria before it creates a problem.
  • When your child rides a bike, they wear a helmet to protect their head. But how can you keep their teeth safe? Make sure your child wears a night guard while playing contact sports.
  • Teeth grinding is common in children and adults alike. If you notice your child is grinding, encourage them to wear a night guard to prevent tooth and jaw injury.
  • We tend to think of teeth as very solid structures. They are, but teeth can still chip or break! Discourage your child from engaging behaviors that may lead to tooth damage, such as chewing on ice or hard candy or using their teeth as a prying tool.
