You Child’s First Visit
The most common question we have regarding children is what age they should start going to the dentist. At Rockville Pediatric Dental, we follow the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Association of Pediatrics (AAP). Both the AAPD and the AAP recommend that a child’s first dental visit should take place at the time of the eruption of the first tooth and no later than 12 months of age.
During the first dental visit, we will get to know your child and get him/her acquainted with the dental office. We will also evaluate your child’s dental health, as well as offer tips for good oral health care. Our goal is to have our youngest patients feel comfortable and excited about visiting the dentist!
