As your local West Pymble dentist we're passionate about ensuring the whole family's smile is cared for. Whether that be mum, dad or the kids our team are experienced at providing high-quality dental for all ages.
Preventive dental care is extremely important in children, especially when it comes to their teeth. Visiting a dentist as early as 6 months of age can be beneficial to your child’s future oral health and allow for the early detection of problems. This even commences a positive relationship with your child’s dentist. We make sure that your child’s first visit to the dentist is enjoyable, by working with them and aiming to:
Maintain oral health
Modify bad habits
Teach good oral hygiene routines to prevent dental disease
Treat issues as early as possible
When to start bringing your kids to the dentist
The first relationship your child has with a dentist can leave a lasting impression but that's why our experienced team are here to help your little one feel welcome and safe.
If you think your child might be concerned about what will happen at the dentist, don't worry we can work with you and provide some strategies to make your child's first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive.
So when should you bring your child to the dentist? The first baby (primary) teeth start showing from as early as four months. Our dentists recommend scheduling your little ones first visit as soon as their first tooth appears.
