Dental Checkups for Kids
Just like adults, children should see their dentist every six months for routine checkups and cleanings. Since your child’s smile is developing at a fairly rapid rate, these intermittent visits allow Dr. Mark to screen for issues as early as possible, allowing for earlier intervention.
Most pediatricians and pediatric dentists recommend bringing children to the dentist for their first exam by age 1, or when their first tooth comes in.
When you schedule your child’s first visit at Forest Hills Dental, we’ll work at their own pace. It may be that all Dr. Mark does is “count” their teeth while performing a brief exam, discussing any concerns that you have. For older or more relaxed children, we may consider going ahead and cleaning their teeth or taking a few X-rays.
