Your children can start getting preventive care for their teeth as early as their first year of life. Smile Studio Kids is proud to offer age one dental visits and other pediatric dental services to residents of Fairburn, Atlanta, College Park and the nearby areas of Georgia
What are Age One Dental Services?
As a new parent, finding your way through your child’s first milestones and doctor’s appointments can be overwhelming. At Smile Studio Kids, we want to make your child’s first dental visit as easy and stress-free as possible. Good oral hygiene starts as soon as your child starts teething. That’s why we recommend coming in for your child’s first dental visit by the time they hit one year old. Our age one dental services are a great way to ensure your child’s oral health is on track.
What Can I Expect During an Age One Dental Service?
Throughout your child’s age one dental visit, Dr. Erika Venn and her pediatric dental team will:
- Check your child’s baby teeth for cavities and signs of decay
- Discuss your child’s developmental milestones
- Show you how to properly care for your child’s teeth
- Discuss the importance of good oral hygiene from a young age
Throughout your child’s first dental visit, we encourage all new parents to ask any questions they may have about their child’s teeth and oral care. Dr. Erika Venn will be more than happy to answer your questions in detail and provide you with a wide range of resources to ensure you feel confident taking care of your child’s teeth following your visit.
How Often Should my One-Year-Old Go to the Dentist?
Many new parents overlook the importance of seeing the dentist when their child is a toddler. That being said, your child’s early developmental years are arguably the most important time in their lives to see a dentist regularly. We recommend all children come in for regular dental appointments every six months following the eruption of their first tooth or by the time they hit one-year-old. Developing this dental visit schedule will not only help parents monitor their child’s oral health, but it will also set their children up for healthy dental habits throughout the rest of their lives.
