At What Age Should My Child First Visit the Dentist?

Oradell Dentist Serving Bergenfield, Dumont, and Oradell, New Jersey

Family dentistry is invaluable. Through it, our office helps young patients in the Dumont area establish the solid habits of dental hygiene that provide a foundation for long-term oral health. We make it a point of ensuring your family has a pleasant and relaxed visit to our office.

If you're like many parents, you probably want to know when you should first bring your child to the dentist's office. Every child is unique, of course, but the principles of pediatric dentistry apply to everyone. Generally speaking, we recommend you bring in your child approximately six weeks after his or her first tooth comes in.

That might seem early, but it's important to get a quick start on dental hygiene for your child. Many baby foods are high in sugar, and if bits and pieces of them are left to rest on your child's teeth, the enamel can quickly get worn away. Visits to our dental office can play a crucial role in ensuring your child receives the care he or she needs.

And because our office offers a range of services to meet the dental needs of your entire family, you'll have a single location for your appointments. We can help your newborn, your older children, you and even your older parents.

If you live in or around Dumont, New Jersey and need the benefits of top-notch family dentistry, please call Oradell Family Dental today at 210-384-9292 for a consultation.
