What Age Should a Child Start Seeing a Pediatric Dentist? | North Port, FL
Pediatric Dentistry & Braces for Children & Teens

Posted by & filed under Pediatric Dentistry

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) says children should visit a pediatric dentist for an initial dental check-up once their first tooth emerges, or no later than the child’s first birthday. While there may not be a mouthful of teeth for a dentist to clean at this point, getting a head start on dental care can expose oral health problems in an early stage when they’re easier to treat and help prevent issues down the road.

Dr. Frank Pettinato and the friendly professionals at Cool Kid Dental in North Port, Florida, know a thing or two about the importance of good oral health from an early age.
