The American Dental Association recommends that you make your child’s first appointment approximately six months after their first tooth emerges. It’s important for you to communicate positive messages about the kids’ dentist so as not to scare your child.
During your child’s first visit, you will meet your Katy dentist and discuss your family’s health history. The dentist will examine your child’s mouth and teeth to be sure everything is developing properly. He or she will then show you the proper way to care for your child’s teeth until they are old enough to learn how to brush and floss. You will also have the opportunity to ask the dentist any questions you might have about recommended products, specific care techniques, or anything else you may want to know.
