First Dentist Visit for Young Children: What to Expect

On the first visit, the dentist will mainly work to get to know your child. Dr. Alin Alkass explains that the dentist will gently examine your child’s mouth to check the development of her teeth and ensure that her bite is aligned. He’ll ask you questions about behaviors related to dental issues, such as thumb sucking, and he’ll give you advice on how to care for your child’s teeth. After the first visit, he will likely want to see your child every six months to build up her comfort level and ensure that her teeth are growing in properly.
