As a parent, you understand that your children can be greatly affected by their first experiences at the dentist’s office. In fact, a child’s early experience can affect their attitudes toward dentist visits throughout their lives.
We realize it’s critical to move at a pace that makes the child comfortable, soothing their nerves, and calming parents.
Our first priority at Dental Care Basking Ridge is to guarantee children have a positive experience. That’s why we’ve created a unique, kid-friendly entertainment zone with toys and a PlayStation video console to make their office visit memorable – for all the right reasons. Not only will they encounter a soothing and supportive environment, kind team members, plush teddy bears and exam room TVs – they’ll even get prizes!
When do I schedule my child’s first dental appointment?
According to recommendations from the AAPD (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry), regular pediatric dental visits should start around the child’s first birthday. Beginning positive dental habits from this early stage will let us find and treat issues at an early stage, avoiding complications as the child grows up.
How often should my child see the dentist?
It is recommended that children see the dentist every 6 months to downgrade the risk of cavities – or detect them early, and to regulate preventive care. Your child will benefit from regular visits in many ways, like detection of dental problems and removal of plaque, which causes bad breath and gum disease.
