The First Ever Dentist Visit
Your child’s first dental health visit to Dakota Dental Clinic is a milestone for both of you. The American Dental Associations recommends that children and their parents visit a family dental practice after the child’s first tooth erupts. This short visit provides an opportunity for us to teach you how to properly care for your child’s teeth. It is also important to build a friendly relationship between kids and dentist from the start.
The next appointment, your child’s first “real” appointment, should take place around three years old. During that appointment we will perform an oral examination as well as provide a cleaning, fluoride treatment and possibly take x-rays. Healthy teeth are a way of life that should be learned from an early age.
We are very proud of our dentistry for children and think both you and your children will come to enjoy your trips to the Apple Valley dental care clinic. Call Dakota Dental and schedule your child’s first dental health check-up today.
