Dentistry for Kids

Children should be seen by a dentist by the age of 1 for a short

examination. The first visit is meant to allow the child to have a

positive relationship with the dentist, check for any problems

with the child’s dental development, and mainly educate the

parents about oral health care for their child.


Children will usually have their first dental X-rays taken by age

5 or 6, though some children may require X-rays to be taken

earlier if the child is at a higher risk for dental decay.  X-rays

also, allow dentists to see if a child’s adult teeth are growing

correctly and to determine if there is abnormal development or

possibly no development of permanent teeth.
