Starting your child’s dental journey young is important! In fact, at TriStar Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we recommend that parents bring in their infants by the age of six months. We recommend bringing your child in at six months because it is usually the time when a baby’s first tooth appears. It is our goal to make sure your baby feels comfortable in our office as we help them establish great dental practices, almost from birth! Also, we hope to prevent any dental issues in advance. By starting early, we can address any dental related problems and treat them immediately. Bringing your child in at a young age for pediatric dental care also establishes a relationship with our team and your child. This bond building helps your child feel more comfortable at the dentist when they are older, making their visit fun and enjoyable rather than scary. For questions or concerns about your baby’s first dental appointment, please do not hesitate to call our team in Dickson!
