When should I bring my child for their first visit?

We recommend that your child come in for their first visit once all their baby teeth have erupted – usually around age three. The sooner we start seeing your child, the better the odds for helping them enjoy a lifetime of happy, healthy smiles.

Our ultimate goal is to help your child develop healthy dental habits. But during the first few visits, our focus is on helping your child get used to our team and the new surroundings. 

We really enjoy working with kids, and we’ll take things nice and slow. We’ll introduce your child gradually to all the new sights and sounds of a dental office. Your child will learn that visits to the dentist can be fun – we’ll even count their teeth and let them take a ride in our dental chair.

It’s understandable that you may feel a little overwhelmed about your child's first visit. This is a huge step! You can rest easy knowing that our team always makes it a point to treat children with friendly care and respect for their unique needs

Our team would love the opportunity to start your child off with a good feeling about caring for their teeth. Please contact our Altamonte Springs dental office to arrange their exciting first visit!
