Your Child’s First Dental Visit
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends a child’s first dental visit should be by age 1. An early start at the dentist can help identify minor dental issues before they become major ones down the road. With your help, Dr. Azar and the Junior Smiles of Stafford team in Stafford VA hope to make your child’s first dental check-up a positive and fun experience! The first dental visit typically focuses on parent education, a thorough exam/cleaning, fluoride application, and introducing kids to our friendly environment. Common topics of discussion are when to expect new teeth, how to help a child brush, pacifier/thumb-sucking, bottle/sippy cup use, and what types of foods/beverages are best for dental health.
