The best time to start dental check-ups for young children is when their teeth first erupt. This may seem a bit early, however, it is the best way to start your son or daughter on the pathway to lifelong oral health.

Your dentist can assess the health of your child’s teeth before problems emerge or existing issues get worse. It’s also helpful for moms and dads to get a review of correct oral hygiene for young children.

The American Academy of Pediatrics counsels that parents begin dental visits before the third birthday. If you have questions about pediatric dentistry, please give us a call at Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS.

Children with an increased risk of dental problems should receive a dental examination as early as possible. Here are some of the risk factors:
