All Smiles Orthodontics & Children's Dentistry
Big Smiles for Little People

When should an infant first see the dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Lan Nguyen, and Dr. Christopher Chau all agree that children should begin seeing their pediatric dentist as soon as their first teeth arrive, or at least by their first birthday.

While this might seem early, it's never too soon to start developing a relationship with a trusted dental team who can help your little one develop good oral habits and a healthy smile for a lifetime.

These first early visits are an excellent time for parents to ask questions about their little one's oral health and development. We also spend a lot of time helping your child acclimate to the dental chair and feel at ease with our dentists counting their teeth and examining their mouths. The more comfortable they feel, the easier their future appointments will be. 

As they get older, we'll incorporate things like teeth cleanings into their appointments. Our dentists may also recommend fluoride treatments and dental sealants as preventive measures for older children.
