How often should I visit the dentist?
Once you have established a dental home, it’s recommended that you visit the dentist at least twice per year. Two trips to the dentist on an annual basis helps:
- Ensure your teeth are aligned correctly.
- Protect teeth from cavities and decay.
- Monitor minor growth and development issues.
- Establish familiarity and trust with the dentist – this is especially important for young children.
When should children start going to the dentist?
The American Dental Association recommends children be seen by a dentist when their first tooth comes in. If no teeth appear by one year of age, we recommend scheduling an appointment shortly after their first birthday.
