SHOULD I BRING MY INFANT TO THE DENTIST?

Yes. Early visits to the dentist are highly informational and supportive. Children should visit the dentist for the first time within six months of getting a first tooth and no later than age one. Choose a pediatric dentist in Cheyenne who specializes in treating children and adolescents. Keep in mind that the initial dental visits for babies and toddlers are primarily educational, but have significant long-term impact on your child’s oral health.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT ON MY CHILD’S FIRST DENTAL VISIT?

It is recommended that your child begins to see a dentist by the time they are one year old. Choosing a dentist and sticking with him/her will help the child feel comfortable about going to the dentist as they grow older.

Do your best to help us make your child’s first experience at a dentist’s office a positive one. It is best if you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as needle, pull, drill, or hurt. Pediatric dental offices make a practice of using words that convey the same message that are pleasant and non-frightening to the child.
