When Should My Kids Start Going To The Dentist?

Did you know that children’s teeth begin forming before birth?  As early as four months, the first primary, or baby teeth, erupt through the gums.  Knowing that, when is the best time to get the dentist involved?  The answer is as soon as the first tooth appears.  At this time, begin brushing your child's teeth daily and schedule a dental appointment.  In most cases, children should visit the dentist by their first birthday.

The first relationship your child has with a dentist can leave a lasting impression.  This is why we pride ourselves on being a Pediatric Specialist.  It is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) that a dental visit should occur within six months after the presence of the first tooth or by a child’s first birthday

Dr. Whitfield, Dr. Eckroat and our staff are specially trained and experienced in Pediatric Dentistry. 

Pediatric Dentistry places special importance in preventing tooth decay. Studies show that poor oral health care in children can lead to impaired school performance and poor social relationships. Therefore, Edmond Pediatric & Teen Dentistry gives advice on how to make teeth strong and the importance of developing healthy eating habits and other ways to prevent disease from occurring.
