Child’s First Dental Visit
The Australian Dental Association recommends that your child’s first oral health visit take place at 12 months of age, or shortly after the eruption of the first baby teeth.
Around your child’s first birthday, once teeth have erupted, it is time for their first visit to the dentist! This appointment is not only important for the health of your child’s teeth (to check for early signs of trouble) but also for your child to get acquainted with the dental surgery and make it a happy place to visit. In the past, many people feared the dentist – but we now find that most of our kiddie patients love to visit us and we love to make it a fun experience for everyone.
