Why does the dentist need to see my child by age one?

Positive Oral Health Habits Start at a Young Age!

One reason Dr. Shah likes to see children by their first birthday is that the sooner we help them get used to the idea of dental visits, the sooner they will come to see these appointments as an interesting and fun adventure.

Very young children need to know that they are safe and secure, and these low-key dental visits help them adjust to the new environment slowly and at their pace. By letting them lead the way, we can show your child that pediatric dentistry at our Wylie, TX dental office is nothing to fear.

Early childhood visits also serve the purpose of helping your little one get used to the general idea of oral care. You can jumpstart the process at home when your child's an infant by wiping down their gums every day with gauze or a soft washcloth. This helps keep their mouth clean and also establishes the idea early on that oral care is just another part of their lives.

Child's First Visit to Our Wylie Office

If you have questions about your child’s oral hygiene or the role a healthy diet plays, these first visits are the perfect time to let your Wylie, TX pediatric dentist know what’s on your mind. We’re here to support you in every way possible, so we encourage you to take advantage of this time to get helpful tips and information that will enable you to make healthier choices for them.
