When should kids start going to the dentist?

Early appointments help your child trust the dental setting, and we work to make their time with us fun. To be honest, we’re not happy unless our dental office is a place your child looks forward to visiting!

At Topeka Dentistry, we like to see your child within six months of the first tooth. Of course, if you have concerns before that time, we’re happy to take a look. Your child’s first exams will be about counting teeth and making sure everything is coming in correctly. We’ll be checking jaw development and more.

As your child grows, we’ll add age-appropriate services to help ensure a healthy smile from the very beginning. Before you know it, counting teeth will graduate to teeth cleanings.

We will also show you the best ways to care for your child’s teeth between dental visits. We’ll provide tips, answer your questions, and address your concerns. If we’re caring for your child’s teeth during routine dental visits, we understand that you’re doing it in the interim. Your child’s oral health is a team effort between you and your child’s dentist.
