Building the Foundation of Good Dental Health for a Lifetime

Starting at Age 1

dental homeWe hope to establish a growing partnership with you, the parents and our patients, because we know that good dental health requires teamwork.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) all recommend establishing a "Dental Home" for your child by one year of age.

The Dental Home is intended to provide a place other than
the Emergency Room for parents.

Pleasant First Visit

When the child is seen at one year, the first visit can be pleasant and uneventful, introducing the child and parents to the dental office. Emphasis is on the developmental assessment of the child’s oral health. Caries (tooth decay) or developmental disturbances can be managed early. Fluoride varnish may be applied to counteract beginning decay on newly erupted teeth.
