When Should My Child Visit The Dentist For The First Time?
At Higginbotham Family Dental in Memphis, TN, we recommend for kids 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.
