The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit the dentist for the first time around their first birthday or when their first tooth erupts (whichever comes first). When we see children from a young age, we can more accurately track their oral development and diagnose any new issues that may not have been seen during a previous appointment. Establishing a relationship with the pediatric specialists at Timber Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics as early as age one will help your child to be more at ease during their dental visit. In addition, our team can help encourage healthy habits at home.
