When to arrange your child’s first visit to the dentist?
Many of you ask yourselves this question when you have children. When should I book their first visit to the dentist?
Back in 1986 it was recommended that a child would have their first visit to the dentist by the time they are 12 months old.
Now a days dental professionals recommend the first visit coincides with your child first tooth eruption.
This visit is important as it will help you determine a preventive and cost effective path and long term benefits on your child’s dental care.
Some of the benefits of an early visit are, promoting preventive dental care and reducing the number of children developing caries.
Some parents may become discouraged when trying to book an dental consultation for your child, as it is common for some practitioners to refuse to see any children under 3 years of age.
But don’t be discouraged, if you have any questions on regards of your child’s first visit to the dentist.
