When should my child visit the dentist?

One of the questions that we get asked a lot is “When should I bring my child in for their first check up?”
We recommend to bring your child for their first dental check up as soon as they turn one or as soon as their baby teeth start to come through, whichever comes first. If you notice anything out of the ordinary before this time we would recommend to also book an appointment to review your concerns. By bringing them in early it will also help them to get used to the environment making it a more pleasant experience as they get older.
Your little one may fuss during their first dental visit, similar to when they get their first haircut. This is completely normal! Our team at Friendly Smiles are specifically trained to ensure that your child is as comfortable as possible during their visits with us, we offer toys, prizes, Millie the millipede, and their favourite show on Netflix
