We recommend that children visit the dentist at age one to two years old. The first visit will be an introductory visit where primary teeth will be inspected and brushing will be demonstrated, as well as dietary considerations. Teaching aides suitable for children will be used and the child is encouraged to participate. This initial visit is important in installing a positive dental attitude during early age. Further visits will deal with cleaning and polishing teeth and any restorative work that might be needed.
