Child-Friendly Elizabethtown Dentist

Family Dentistry For Elizabethtown Patients

It’s a question that many parents in Elizabethtown debate: When should I take my child in for their first family dentistry appointment? The answer may be a little earlier than you think.

The American Dental Association recommends that a child sees a dentist around twelve months of age. This happens to be about the time when the first teeth tend to erupt.

Some parents may wonder why dental visits are needed so early in their child’s life. Not only will your Elizabethtown dentist want to clean your child’s teeth and apply fluoride, it’s also important for small children to get used to seeing the dentist.

Starting early dental visits will mean that later in life your Elizabethtown child is less likely to require braces or other cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental implants.

If you have a child that is apprehensive about visiting White Family Dental, you might want to think about bringing them to your next Elizabethtown dental appointment. Seeing you in the dental chair will help them become more comfortable with the idea.

I’m Dr. Ed White, a child-friendly Elizabethtown dentist, and I want my patients to have the best oral health possible. I also want them to look their best, so if you have any questions about a smile makeover, give us a call at 717-367-1336.
