When Should My Child’s First Dental Visits Be?

added on: March 30, 2015

Cedar Rapids family dentist Dr. Blaine McLaughlin suggests your little one’s first children’s dentistry visit occur by his or her first birthday. You may bring your child in for a visit earlier if you have concerns or several teeth have already erupted, but year one is fairly standard for a first pediatric dentistry visit.

If you are ready to bring your child in for his or her first dental visit, please call 319-373-5082 to schedule an appointment today.

Why Early Visits Matter

Early life family dentistry appointments serve three primary purposes:

  • They allow Dr. McLaughlin to ensure development is progressing normally
  • They allow us to provide you with information about properly caring for your child’s teeth
  • They help your child become comfortable with dental visits, guarding against dental phobia and anxiety as he or she ages

Ours is a comfortable, safe, and inviting family dentistry practice where children are encouraged to take active steps in protecting the health of their smile. We work directly with both children and parents to provide a rewarding experience that sets the course for a lifetime of strong, healthy, and beautiful teeth.
