Children can have their first dental appointment at Anderson Dental at around one year old or when their first teeth start to arrive. This may seem early, but these first visits allow us to connect with your little one and build a relationship with them, so they feel welcome and safe when they visit their pediatric dentist in Champaign.
We typically spend first visits examining and counting your baby's teeth while they acclimate to the dental office. We will never proceed with any procedure they're not comfortable with, and we'll include teeth cleanings in these appointments as they get older.
During these first dental visits, we spend a lot of time educating parents about their child's oral health. We'll also offer helpful tips on home care, nutrition, and other steps you can take to guard your son or daughter's dental health.
This is a great time to bring your questions along and ask our dentists anything you might want to know or feel concerned about with your little one's teeth.
