Our dentists and team at SA Dental love helping children learn how to care for their smiles. When you bring your child to our office, you can count on us to make sure that they feel comfortable and help them enjoy a positive experience with our team. We are committed to helping your child learn good oral habits so that they can keep their mouth and smile healthy for a lifetime.
We, along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), recommend that you bring your child to the dentist for their very first dental checkup no later than six months after their first tooth erupts, or by their first birthday. These initial visits rarely include treatment and are instead an opportunity to help your child develop positive associations with visiting the dental office so that they do not feel anxious or afraid in the future. Our dentists and team are also here to be resources so that you can learn the best ways to take care of your child’s oral health.
We will also help you establish a schedule of regular dental visits for your child. We recommend bringing them to our office every six months for a dental cleaning and exam so that we can make sure that their teeth remain free from any problems.
