Who Does Your Teeth wants to care for your child’s teeth from the beginning. Dr. Jeffrey Neal recommends that you bring your child into our office for their first visit by their first birthday, or when they receive their first baby tooth. Dr. Neal will ensure that your child’s teeth remain health, that their oral growth patterns are normal, and that parents are aware of proper at-home dental hygiene habits. For more information, and to schedule your child’s first dental visit in Henrico, Virginia, please call us today at 804-447-1435. We look forward to caring for your family’s smiles!
Protecting your child’s teeth is important for lifelong oral health. According to the American Dental Association, your child should have their first visit to the dentist no later than 6 months after their first tooth comes in and no later than your child’s first birthday. By visiting the dentist early on, you can help us protect your child’s smile as they receive their primary, and later, permanent, teeth.
When you bring your child into our office, we can help you understand how to best clean your child’s teeth during the teething process, and while your child waits to receive their permanent teeth. We also discuss diet as an influence on oral health, as well as when fluoride toothpaste is appropriate. Our caring dentist and team can also help answer any other questions you many have about taking care of your child’s teeth. When you bring your child into our office, our dentist can also monitor your child’s growth for signs of any future irregularities. This can allow your child to receive early treatment, thus preventing future problems all together. If you have questions or concerns about your child’s first dental visit, we invite you to please call or visit our office. We are happy to help in any way.
