Early Childhood Dental Care. When to take your child to the pediatric dentist? According to the American Academy Of Pediatric Dentistry, parents should take their child in for a dental examination when the first tooth appears or no later than their child’s first birthday.

Fluoride for Children. It’s very important to provide the fluoride treatment for children. The fluoride treatment prevents decay and helps teeth grow with a healthy dentition. Children under the age of two should not receive any topical form of fluoride due to the potential of swallowing it.
Child’s First Visit to the Dentist. Children should have their first dental checkup within 6 months of their first tooth appearance. At this time only a visual exam can be done but early dental problems may be detected and parental questions can be answered.
