When Should I Bring My Kids to the Dentist for the First Time
I’ve got a lot of patients come here pregnant and then I’m excited to talk about their oral hygiene. You can bring your kids to see me when they are in the tummy, I’ve got a lot of patients come here pregnant and then I’m excited to talk about their oral hygiene.
You know how when you talk to the mums, the kids start getting a little bit of sense about their oral hygiene, so that’s something that I always do. I jokes about you can bring your children when you come in for your dental visits every six month, but if you are not a regular visitor of dentists then the ideal time to go to a dentist with your child or take your child to a dentist would be when their first teeth come through just to get that checked, everything is okay and to get some oral hygiene instructions.
Once the child starts turning two, two and a half, they get their baby molars, so baby teeth are very easy to get decay, so it’s important to go to a dentist once they turn two years old.
