Children & Infant Dental Care

There are many areas of prevention and care that are unique to children whom the pediatric dentist is specifically trained to identify, treat and prevent. That is why many parents wisely choose a pediatric dentist for their child’s dental needs, just as they choose a pediatrician for their medical needs.

There seems to be a lot of confusion amongst parents, pediatricians, and dentists about the correct timing for the first dental visit. Many “family” dentists may tell parents not to bring children to their practice before they have all their primary teeth (age two or three), sometimes they even recommend to wait until age six. However, the AAPD recommends an initial postnatal oral evaluation within six months of the eruption of the first primary tooth and no later than twelve months of age. This means a child should have his or her first dental visit at the first birthday!

Here at Westchester Smile Design we feel it is very important that your children are comfortable with their dentist and are educated at an early age about good dental habits. We are ready to give you and your family the quality dental care you deserve. Contact us to schedule a free consultation to learn more.
