When should my child have their first dentist appointment?

Our pediatric dentist in Wilmington likes to see children around their first birthday or within six months of the first tooth eruption. These early appointments familiarize your child with the dental setting and help instill good habits from the start.

These appointments also allow our children’s dentist in Wilmington to monitor your child’s oral development and spot any potential issues early. Additionally, we help educate you on how to care for your child’s smile at home, which plays a crucial role in his or her success.

Discussions may include:

  • Thumb sucking, pacifier use
  • Teething concerns
  • Cleaning your child’s teeth after eating
  • What to do in the event of a dental emergency
  • Nutritional counseling

And we always take the time to answer your questions or address your concerns.

Our dentists also believe that dentistry should be fun for your child, and we work hard to help them feel confident and comfortable in our dental office. We want your child to enjoy coming to the dentist as much as we love seeing him or her in our practice!

Healthy smiles for life start with excellent dental experiences.
