Q: When should we schedule our first visit?
At Salt Lake Pediatric Dentistry, we maintain the policy of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and recommend that your child’s first visit should take place by the time your child is 1 year old. The first visit is very important with each one of our patients. We know that this is a young age to expose your child to something that can potentially seem scary and intimidating, but at Salt Lake Pediatric Dentistry, we are professionals and will do everything necessary to make sure your child has a pleasant, comfortable first visit.
The advantage to taking your child to a certified pediatric dentist is that your young child will be taken to specialists who know how to cater to the needs of your child, no matter how young your children are. We make sure to include you (the parents or guardians) in every visit, and give you instructions as well as your young child.
