By their first birthday, of course! You can also plan to have your child see the dentist when their first tooth comes in.
What's the difference between a pediatric dentist and a regular dentist?

You should know that pediatric dentists undergo an additional two years of training to get your child the smile they deserve!
How often should my child need to see the dentist?
You should make dental cleaning appointments for your child every six months.
What's the difference between the Pro plans?

What should I know about baby teeth?
Primary teeth, also known as “baby” teeth, are your child’s first set of teeth. Baby teeth make it easier for your child to chew foods and learn to say words such as, “Mommy” and “Daddy”. A good set of baby teeth lays the foundation for their permanent pearly whites later on!
How soon should infants begin brushing?
Parents should begin to brush their child’s teeth as soon as the first tooth erupts. To prevent “sugar bugs” (cavities) on your child’s teeth, use a small amount of fluoride toothpaste. To make it fun for your child, brush with them twice a day! A fun way to introduce brushing to your child is to make it a nightly routine during bath time!

What kinds of food create strong teeth for my child?
Great question! Choose foods for your child that are jam-packed with vitamins and nutrients. Vegetables, fruits, and dairy products help support healthy teeth for a lifetime!
Is a mouth guard necessary?
A mouth guard is offers great protection to the teeth during sports for boys and girls! If your child is an active player in football, basketball, baseball/softball and other sports alike—we recommend protecting their shining smile!
Are dental x-rays safe for my child?
Yes! We make sure to take every precaution possible so you and your child will feel safe and relaxed. Lead vests are our secret to protecting your child, while they undergo an x-ray.  
What causes "sugar bugs" (cavities)?
“Sugar bugs” or cavities, are caused by sugary foods. When your child eats food with too much sugar, the enamel weakens. The enamel is the outer layer of your child’s teeth that protects them from sugar bugs. Once this layer comes into contact with sugar a few too many times, your child may catch the case of the “sugar bugs”! We are more than happy to care for your child’s “sugar bugs” by keeping you, the parent, involved with their dazzling smile!
