Northwest Arkansas Family Dental
Fayetteville, AR Dentist

At what age should my child first see the dentist?

To establish a lifetime of healthy habits, we like to see children early—usually by their first birthday. This schedule also falls in line with American Dental Association recommendations.

However, if you have a concern before your child’s first birthday, never hesitate to give us a call.

Your child’s dentist in Fayetteville, AR provides a gentle and fun first exam. At this initial visit, our team also works to build a rapport with your child and help them feel confident in the dental setting. This can mean a ride in the comfy exam chair, counting teeth, or animated conversations with our team.

Following your child’s checkup, we’ll discuss any findings or concerns with you. Additionally, our team can share oral health tips to help you keep your child’s teeth in top shape between visits. Other topics may include nutritional advice or ways to curb pacifier habits.

And we always welcome your questions. Together, we can give your child a healthy start by instilling excellent dental habits from the beginning.
