First Dental Visit
Initial Dentist Appointment, Sea of Smiles Pediatric Dentistry
The America Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that in order to prevent dental problems, your child should see a pediatric dentist when the first tooth appears, or no later than his/her first birthday. We discuss growth and development, teething and habit issues, discuss fluoride status and develop oral hygiene strategies specifically for your child so that they can become independently healthy! We explain this from a child’s perspective.
