Helping your child have positive associations with going to the dentist starts with the very first visit. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that you help your child become comfortable with the dentist by taking them as soon as their first tooth erupts. Doing so increases their chances of establishing proper oral hygiene habits from the beginning and will minimize any dentistry-related fears they may have as they become old enough to develop them.
At Family Dental Choice, we take great pride in our ability to make your child’s experience as pleasant as possible. Before we begin the cleaning or examination, we take the time to use age-appropriate words to explain the procedure. We make sure our young patients are comfortable and at ease before, during, and after their examination.
Like adults, your child should visit Dr. Hahn every six months for regular cleanings and checkups. If you’d like to schedule an appointment for your child, contact our office today.
