Here at Surrey Place Dental, we love seeing patients of all ages. Whether it’s your child’s first trip to the dentist or you have concerns about their oral health and development, there’s no better place to bring your child. We know the amount of care and attention your child needs and deserves, and we embrace the challenge of making every child that walks in our door excited to come back for their next visit. We make it our personal mission that every child leaves our office with a smile on their face and a balloon animal in their hand.
We recommend that your child should first visit the dentist between 12-18 months old. Although there may not be many teeth to examine at this point, it’s important that your child sees the dentist as a friendly, non-threatening environment and gets used to visits at an early age. It’s also important as any adverse conditions such as cavities or tooth development issues are far easier to treat when diagnosed early on. Also, we’d love to be able to answer any questions you have as a parent on how to properly care for your child’s teeth from the very beginning.
Please be aware that just because they’re “baby teeth,” any issues with them still need to be addressed and treated properly. Untreated cavities or damage to the primary dentition (baby teeth) can lead to dangerous results such as pain, severe infection, as well as difficulty eating. If you have any concerns or questions about your child’s teeth or oral health, please do not hesitate to call and make an appointment with any of our experienced dentists.
