Your child's first visit to the dentist should happen before his or her first birthday. The general rule is six months after eruption of the first tooth. 

Taking your child to the dentist at a young age is the best way to prevent problems such as tooth decay, and can help parents learn how to clean their child's teeth and identify his or her fluoride needs.  Bringing your child to the dentist early often leads to a lifetime of good oral care habits and acclimates your child to the dental office, thereby reducing anxiety and fear, which will make for plenty of stress-free visits in the future.

How do I prepare my child  for the visit?

                              Before the visit, ask the dentist about the procedures of the first appointment so there are no surprises. 

                              Plan a course of action for either reaction your child may exhibit  cooperative or non- cooperative. 
                            Very young children may be fussy and not sit still. Talk to your child about what to expect, and build excitement as well as understanding about the upcoming visit. 
                             Bring with you to the appointment any records of your child's complete medical history.

What will happen on the first visit?

                                   👀  Child appointments should always be scheduled earlier in the day, when your child is alert and fresh.If your child is frightened, uncomfortable or non-cooperative, a rescheduling may be necessary.

                               👀  Patience and calm on the part of the parent and reassuring communication with your child are very important in these instances. 
                               👀 Short, successive visits are meant to build the child's trust in the dentist and the dental office, and can prove invaluable if your child needs to be treated later for any dental problem.
                               👀 For children under 36 months, the parent may need to sit in the dental chair and hold the child during the examination. Or, parents may be asked to wait in the reception area so a relationship can be built between your child and the dentist.

                                👀  If the child is compliant, the first session often lasts between 15 and 30 minutes and may include the following, depending on age:

                          A gentle but thorough examination of the teeth, jaw, bite, gums and oral tissues to monitor growth and development. 
                           Observe any problem areas If indicated, a gentle cleaning, which includes polishing teeth and removing any plaque, tartar buildup or stains.
                           A demonstration on proper home cleaning.

                                👀  The entire dental team should provide a relaxed, non-threatening environment for your child.

When should the next visit be?

                        ➧ Children, like adults, should see the dentist every six months. Some dentists may schedule interim visits for every three months when the child is very young to build up a comfort and confidence level or to treat a developing problem.
