When should my child first see the dentist?
At Sabino Hills Family Dentistry, we see children as soon as they have all their baby teeth, but no later than age one. We love working with kids to make sure they have a positive experience every time they visit our Tucson dental office. Getting your child started on a lifetime of good oral health care habits is one of the best things we can do for them.
The goal of the first visit is for us to meet them and let them see that going to the dentist is fun. We’ll give them a ride in the chair, count their teeth, and show them how to brush. Using panoramic x-rays (no film), we’ll take pictures to get a baseline for future treatment.
We understand how important it is that we gradually get your child used to being around us in the office environment. Our professional team takes all the time necessary to treat your children with the special attention they need to help them feel safe and secure.
As parents, we know that you probably have concerns about your child’s first trip to the dentist. Please do not hesitate to contact our Tucson dental office, and we’ll be happy to arrange a visit so you can get to know Dr. Allen and our caring team.
