Your Child’s First Dental VisitYour Child’s First Dental Visit

There is nothing quite as beautiful as a child’s smile. At Eagle Lake Family Dentistry, we believe that excellent oral care at home and regular visits to the dentist are the keys to preventing dental problems and keeping your child’s smile healthy and beautiful!

Get your child off to a great start, by scheduling your first visit to the dentist about 6 months after their first tooth emerges, or by age one. Baby teeth are very important in ensuring that your child can eat healthy foods, speak properly and hold the space until permanent teeth come in. This is a great time to make sure that your child is on the right track to a keeping a healthy smile.

At the first visit, our doctors and dental team will discuss oral health care, nutrition, recommend any oral care products and answer any questions you may have about your child’s developing teeth and smile. It is a great opportunity for your child to be introduced to the dentist office early and before any dental problems occur. We want to make sure your child has a positive first experience. Promoting good oral health habits at an early age is critical in keeping your child’s smile healthy now and throughout their lives.
