Kids First Visit To The Dentist


July 18, 2019

If your child has their first few teeth, you might be wondering what age you should take your little one to the dentist.

If your child has their first few teeth, you might be wondering what age you should take your little one to the dentist. And how will they possibly sit still and let a stranger look in their mouth? Without screaming!

At Adelaide Quality Dental, we want your toddler to have a fun first experience, so as they grow up (with healthy teeth and gums), going to the dentist will never be a drama.

What age should you take your child?

Here’s an easy way to remember – ‘first visit by first birthday’.

Although many children don’t have their first proper dental check-up until they’re toddlers or older, the Australian Dental Association encourages parents to take them to the dentist when they’re babies. By caring for their teeth early, you’ll set them up with healthy oral habits and any dental problems won’t get out of hand.

We like to make sure we’ve seen your little one for a check-up by the time they’re three years old.

Get your little one ready to visit the dentist.

While the first visit can just be to familiarise your child with the dentist and to ride in the big chair, some preparation can really pay off.

What will happen at their first visit?
