A Great Dentist

At what age should I first bring my child to the dentist?

At Phinney Ridge Dental, we agree with the recommendation of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry that states children should start seeing the dentist when the first baby tooth appears or by their first birthday. Baby teeth are temporary, but there’s a lot of oral growth and development taking place, even at this young age.

Mother and daughter brushing teeth | Children's Dentist Seattle,WAPreserving baby teeth is essential because they help guide permanent teeth into the correct position when they erupt. Preventive services like dental exams, teeth cleanings, fluoride, and dental sealants allow our children’s dentist in Seattle, WA to help maintain the health of baby teeth until they come out on their own.

Part of our children’s dentistry services includes educating parents about the importance of proper oral health care at home.
