Denver Family Dentistry

When should my child first see a dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that each child visit a dentist by their first birthday or when their first tooth comes in. These early visits provide an opportunity for your child to develop a positive attitude toward dental care and dentists. We take your little one for a ride in the chair, and meet with you to discuss common childhood dental concerns, such as brushing, bottles, and thumb sucking. 

Most children don't need comprehensive or restorative dentistry before the age of 4. We are happy to provide comprehensive children's dentistry for children above the age of 4. If your child is younger than 4 and needs restorative care, we can refer you to a pediatric dentist.
