At what age should I bring my child to the dentist?

Our children’s dentist in Wylie likes to see children early, usually when you notice their first tooth popping through the gum. However, if teeth do not emerge before their first birthday, we recommend a checkup in our dental office, regardless.

What Happens At My Child's First Appointment?

Initial appointments are to check for proper tooth eruption and jaw development. We also want to begin a relationship with your child that fosters trust and positive feelings about the dental setting. The earlier we can do this, the better. Good associations with the dental office from an early age can encourage good oral habits in children as they grow into adulthood.

Your child’s first dental visit is also about you. We want to hear your concerns and address your questions. We can even provide tips for at-home dental care, including how to best care for your child’s teeth and gums and information on the best nutrition for healthy teeth.

As your child ages, our dentistry evolves to meet their needs, and we will always discuss all findings with you following their checkups.
