The AAPD recommends that a child be seen for his/her first dental visit by age one. Our goal is to make your child’s first visit as simple, enjoyable and educational as possible.Parents who choose a pediatrician for their child’s medical needs should choose a pediatric dentist for their child’s dental health needs. Pediatric dentistry is the dental specialty recognized by the American Dental Association that encompasses comprehensive dental care for all children, from infancy through adolescence. A pediatric dentist is the only dentist completely qualified for the delivery of comprehensive children’s dental care.
