It is best to bring your child to the dentist for the first time at about 1-2 years of age. Although your child will not have a full set of primary teeth until about two years of age, we encourage parents to bring their children in when they are younger for several reasons. This will:

  • allow our team to ensure that the home care of your child’s teeth is working well;
  • allow your child to have an opportunity to just visit the dentist and not be subjected to any procedures during that initial visit;
  • enable Dr. Zastre to detect any potential problems or concerns with your child’s oral health and/or diet; and
  •  ensure that our dental team can answer any questions and alleviate any concerns you may have about your child’s dental health.

We want to teach all of our patients about proper oral hygiene,  Establishing good habits early is an important part of reducing and ideally, eliminating most oral health problems.  We want our toddlers to know that visiting the dentist is a good thing!

first dental visit

During your child's first visit, we will review their dental and medical history with you, complete an oral examination and assess whether we need to and can successfully obtain X-rays necessary based on your child’s individual needs and disposition at our first meeting..

The Doctor will be checking for cavities, early signs of tooth decay and gingivitis. If treatment is necessary, we will formulate a treatment plan and will answer any questions you may have.
