Scheduling Your Child’s First Dental Visit

Child's First Dental Visit

In order for dental health to be a lifelong commitment, you need to start your child early. If your child has yet to see a pediatric dentist in Issaquah for the first time, you might be wondering how to go about setting up an appointment. Watch this video for tips on scheduling your child’s first dental visit.

Dentists recommend that you bring your child in for an appointment around the time of his or her first birthday or at the eruption of the first tooth. At the first appointment, your dentist will look for cavities, injuries, and other dental health issues. You can also take this opportunity to ask your dentist about your child’s oral health and what you can do to improve it. Remember to talk to your child in preparation for his or her first visit so you can both stay comfortable and positive throughout the experience.
