The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child’s first dental visit takes place after that first tooth appears, but no later than his/hers first birthday.
This is recommended because as soon as your baby has teeth, he or she can get cavities. Being proactive about your child’s dental health today can help keep his or her smile healthy for life.
At Acton Smile Hub, we are happy to see and treat patients of all ages.
At your child’s visit, a cleaning and exam will be performed and well as fluoride treatment, and xrays if indicated and depending on patient’s age.
Anticipatory guidance is a proactive counseling technique we use that focuses on the needs of the child at each stage of life and includes oral hygiene recommendations, nutritional tips, eruption and shedding of teeth and prevention of deleterious oral habits.
