Early Dental Care For Your Child
A child’s first dental check-up should occur between the ages of 6 months to one year. Informing your child about their first dental visit is very helpful. At your child’s first visit to Cumberland Valley Pediatric Dentistry, they will meet our kind doctor and have everything explained to him/her. Pediatric dentists are trained to handle the wide range of issues associated with kids’ dental health. They also know when to refer you to a different type of specialist, such as an orthodontist to correct an overbite or an oral surgeon for jaw realignment.
We encourage parents to accompany their child during their visit. This gives you an opportunity to see us working with your child and allows us to discuss dental findings and treatment needs directly with you.These visits can help find problems early and help kids get used to visiting the dentist so they’ll have less fear about going as they get older.
If no treatment is needed, the teeth will be cleaned and a fluoride treatment will be provided. We look forward to meeting you and your child for your first appointment!
