Schedule your child’s first dental visit between the arrival of the first tooth and his or her first birthday. If possible, schedule a morning appointment, when young children tend to be rested and more cooperative. Stay positive! You can help by keeping to yourself any anxiety that you might feel about dental visits. Try to make your child’s dental visit an enjoyable outing. Teaching your child good oral hygiene habits early can lead to a lifetime of good dental health.
