When should kids start going to the dentist?

New parents often wonder, when should kids start going to the dentist? This is a very important question, as you certainly want to get your child’s dental hygiene off to the right start. The Canadian Dental Association recommends that your child visit the dentist either within six months of their first tooth coming in or before they turn one year old. The ultimate goal, however, is to have your child visit a provider of pediatric dentistry in North Vancouver before any problem’s start to arise. By visiting early and often, your child’s dentist can identify and easily fix small cavities or misaligned teeth before they potentially become a much larger problem. However, cases like these are rare. Typically your child’s first few dental visits are a quick examination and a positive confirmation that, as parents, you are properly cleaning your children’s teeth. Further, studies have also shown that children who start visiting the dentist early in life are more likely to grow up without fear of future visits!

Our team at Third Street Dental is well aware that many children are afraid of going to the dentist. That is why it is our biggest goal to be the friendliest provider of child dentistry in North Vancouver. Visiting the dentist can be a fun and educational experience, and that is what we seek to provide. Children always leave the Third Street Dental office with big smiles on their faces, and it is our aim that they walk into their appointment with that same level of excitement and joy as we see at the end!
