Find Age-Appropriate Care For Your Child
Even if you’re an experienced parent, you may wonder when you should bring your child for their first Davenport Dental Group dental visit. We suggest taking your child to a pediatric dentist soon after their first tooth comes out and then establishing routine cleanings at our office when your child is 3 years old. You can prepare them for it by bringing them with you to a few of your exams to help them feel comfortable at our office. Our family dentistry approach works well because we develop relationships with your entire crew!
During your child’s initial visits, we’ll introduce them to our services at a pace they are comfortable with. They may experience:
- A gentle yet thorough dental exam and cleaning by a hygienist
- Digital X-rays, which are easier on small mouths than traditional X-rays
- A conversation with our friendly dentist
- A sticker to reward them for good behavior
- The ability to watch their favorite cartoons while we work
Since children reach milestones at different ages, it’s important to bring your child in to see us at least every six months. That way, we can keep a close eye on their development and oral health. With our family dentistry, they’ll receive great dental care for life.
If your little one is at least 3 years old, call us at 956-517-2695 to schedule your child’s first dental visit at our Winfield location in Laredo.
