Your Child’s First Visit to Smile Valley Pediatric Dentistry
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children have their first dental visit by their first birthday. This might seem young, but kids can get cavities as soon as their first tooth erupts. Plus, not only will early visits allow our Spring Valley pediatric dentists to make sure your child’s teeth and gums are healthy and their development is on track, they also let your child get used to the sights and sounds of the dental office and develop a relationship with our team. When kids feel comfortable going to the dentist, it creates a foundation for lifelong oral health.
