At what age should I start taking my kids to see the dentist?
The Australian Dental Association recommends that children should have their first check-up at 1 year of age. At this time, your child’s baby teeth will be coming through and the dentist can examine the health of their first few teeth. After the first visit, be sure to schedule regular check-ups every six months. We understand that young children are often not very cooperative; therefore it is best if you can bring them along to your appointments so they can be more familiar with the environment. We strongly advise that you check your child’s teeth at home. It is important to detect abnormalities such as white patches, dark spots or holes in their teeth as early as possible. If you notice any of the conditions mentioned above, please make an appointment so we can assess your child’s teeth.
