Our practice, as well as the Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recommends that children see a dentist and establish a Dental Home by their first birthday. There are multiple goals of early dental visits. Most importantly, early visits help to establish good oral hygiene and dietary practices to prevent tooth decay. Finger and pacifier habits are addressed and cavity risk is evaluated. Trauma to the baby teeth is common, especially in toddlers. Having a Dental Home for your child gives you a place to turn when dental injuries occur.
At Just Kids Dental we want to make your baby’s first dental visit a positive experience. We allow our parents to accompany their children and be a part of the dental experience. It’s our job to make you and your child comfortable.
