Has your child been to the dentist? If not, it’s time to start instilling good dental hygiene habits for life. At Livermore Dental & Orthodontics, we offer exams, cleanings, and other services in a fun and friendly environment for patients of all ages.
Call us today to learn more about our pediatric services or to schedule an appointment for your child. Your little one can begin going to the dentist around the age of one.
Children should first go to the dentist when they are about a year old or within six months of getting their first teeth. Most children get their first teeth when they are around six months old.
After your child’s first exam and cleaning, they should have regular checkups twice a year. If your child is experiencing any concerning signs, you should come in for additional appointments.
It’s important for children to go to the dentist from a young age, so they learn the importance of oral hygiene early in life. They can learn how to take care of their teeth and continue those good habits into adulthood.
When your child goes to the dentist, they will become more comfortable with the environment and know what to expect at appointments. They will also get in the habit of going to the dentist once every six months.
At Livermore Dental & Orthodontics, we understand that children may be scared when going to the dentist for the first time. We keep our office fun and friendly to ensure your child feels comfortable.
Prior to your child’s appointment, you may come in for a tour, and so your child can get to know our team. Then, when it’s time for your child’s cleaning and exam, they will feel more comfortable in our office.
