Children's First Dental Visit

Your baby’s first dental visit is not only an important milestone but also vital to their dental health.

The Canadian Dental Association (CDA) suggests that babies have their first dental appointment within six months of the eruption of their first tooth (or by their first birthday). This serves several important purposes:

  • It gives your dentist the opportunity to assess your baby’s at-home dental care routine
  • It allows dentists to identify and resolve problems, such as decay

During your child’s appointment, your dentist can identify any early childhood caries present. Children are at risk for dental decay that results from bottles at nap time and nursing.

Visiting the dentist at an early age ensures that your child establishes positive dental health practices for life.

Smile Town is home to dedicated pediatric dentists in Cambridge, Ontario who will make your child’s first dental visit a special and informative one.

Pediatric Dental Clinic in Cambridge, Ontario

Oral care for children is significantly different than oral care for adults. Pediatric dentists undergo additional education and training to ensure they are equipped to diagnose and treat children’s dental health.

Pediatric dentists are also trained to work with children in a way that allows them to feel comfortable and, just as importantly, have fun at the dentist.

Pediatric dental offices are designed to meet the unique needs of your child. If your child is able to have fun at the dentist office, they will be better able to develop positive dental habits.

Smile Town is home to pediatric dentists who have experience working with all children of all ages. If your child is afraid of the dentist, the Smile Town team will work with you to modify behaviour in order to ensure strong and long-lasting oral health.
