At Riverstone Dental Clinic, we recommend your child’s first dental visit to be about age 3, however, you can consider bringing your child for a visual exam as early as 6 months of age. Consider having your child come in and watch you get a cleaning and exam before it is their turn, so they know what to expect. Pick a time of day when your child is generally well rested. Children are intuitive, be careful not to pass on your own fears or anxieties about dental visits to your children. Assure you are positive and prepared for the experience.
