Good oral health starts from a young age – we encourage our patients to bring their children in for their first appointment as soon as their first teeth start to come through, or their first birthday. However, it’s important that your child feels safe, familiar, and comfortable in the dental environment, so we encourage you to bring them along to your own appointments even before then.
At Albany Creek Dental our team is experienced at working with children of all ages and creating a calm and engaging experience for them. We understand the importance of positive dental experiences for children and the impact this has on how they maintain their oral health as they grow.
What to expect at the first visit?
The initial examination is usually a visual inspection and count of the child’s teeth. Your dentist will let you know the current health of your child’s mouth and advise on brushing techniques and nutritional advice.
