As a parent, you want the greatest health for your child, and that means making sure they’re receiving treatment from reputable medical professionals who will see to attaining the child’s best health. We often get asked by concerned parents when they should start taking their infants into our office for dental checkups.

We recommend that you bring your little one into our office for their first dental appointment within half of a year of their first tooth growing in or before their first birthday, whichever happens first. Visiting the dentist will decrease your child’s probability of developing cavities from plaque and tartar accrual. Your dentist will treat your child’s baby teeth, which are crucial placeholders for adult chompers, and they will help your child’s teeth advance into a healthy oral cavity that will strengthen their oral and overall health for the rest of their life. And setting the standard of great oral care early will support your child to develop the habits they need to maintain a healthy oral cavity throughout their life.

Please reach out to Dentistry For Kids at 704-948-8494 to pencil in your Huntersville, North Carolina, checkup with Dr. Kisha Steele Mitchell. Our friendly, helpful staff will make sure that you get the attention you deserve, and they’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.
