Monroe Dental Arts

When should my child have their first dental appointment?

At Monroe Dental Arts, we are happy to see children of all ages; whether you are up to date with your child's dentist appointments or not, we don't judge. There is no time like the present when it comes to helping your children develop good dental habits and healthy teeth.

When Should I Bring My Child In?

Your child should come in for their first dental appointment with us after their first tooth comes in, but no later than their first birthday, whichever occurs first.

This first dentist appointment is critical to the well-being of your child. In addition to providing oral health care tips for caring for your child's teeth, the dentist will be able to assess things like bite strength and jaw development.

Working with the dentist will also help you prevent issues like baby bottle-caused tooth decay. The first visit to the family dentist is also important for helping to establish a routine habit of going to the dentist and getting your children comfortable with the idea of being there.
