When Should My Child Visit The Dentist For The First Time?

At Higginbotham Family Dental in Kennett, MO, we recommend for children to start visiting the dentist at age 2. While some may think this is a young age, it is the perfect time to get a toddler used to the dentist. At his or her first initial visit, we will introduce them to their hygienist, dentist, and other staff. We will also let them look around the office to get comfortable. At this first visit, we will only go so far as the child allows. We do not want to cause any fear or stress to the child that could lead to trauma at later visits. If the child is amenable, we will count their teeth, get an x-ray of their mouth, and polish their teeth. Finally, they get to pick out a prize from the treasure box. Again, we will only do what the child is comfortable with. Traditionally, the first 2-3 visits are taken step-by-step until the child is fully comfortable with the entire dental process. Feel free to contact us if you have more specific questions regarding a child’s first dental visit or to schedule.

The Whole Crew Was Great!

I have been coming here a while and they are always awesome! My hygienist today, Tiffany, was great. She was really interested about my day and she wasn’t rushing me out the door. She told me everything she was going to do before she did it and was really thorough. Dr. Dickson and the whole crew was great. I will keep coming back!!!

Tracy welcomes us a big smile and made my little girl so comfortable for her first trip to the dentist and not to mention there was practically no wait time. I definitely give Tracy and this dentist office a 7 out of 5 stars. They were amazing!
