When & What Is My Child’s First “Regular” Visit?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children have their first dentist visit no later than their first birthday.
At Cumberland Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, we make the first visit, and every visit following, a fun, easy experience for you and your child. From the moment you walk through our doors, you will find that we have created a place for kids, teens and parents.
Your child’s first visit will include a complete examination of his/her mouth. Your child will also have digital X-rays taken of their teeth and receive a dental cleaning and fluoride treatment. After the appointment, one of our doctors will consult with you to discuss proper home care, as well as answer any questions you may have.
