Child Dental Care Tips

At what age should my child visit the dentist?

We recommend that children as young as two come along with their parents to visit the dentist just to get a feel for the place. The noises, smells and sights can be confronting for children and we like to put them at ease by giving them a ride in the chair and showing them around. By doing it this way at an early age, we slowly introduce them to the dentist, so if an unexpected emergency happens they will already be familiar with the setting and we can put them at ease quickly. After the initial visit, we suggest still bringing your child along to your regular family checkups and each time we will have a look at their teeth and eventually we can try for a little polish.  Our hygienists Crona and Celia are very good at working with children and knowing how to progress with them.
