Did you know that tooth decay is the most common chronic disease in children, even though it is entirely preventable?
Here is a guide to help you and your children ensure that they have a great start to a lifetime of good Oral Health. Our Children's Dentist is trained to make sure the visit is as positive as possible.
When should my Toddler first see a Dentist?
As a rule of thumb, it is time for a dental visit when your baby's first tooth becomes visible or they reach 12 months old - whichever comes first. If you notice anything you think is out of the ordinary before this time, contact your local dentist.
Tips for your child's first dental visit with our Children's Dentists include:

Guide to when teeth appear
As a guide, your baby is likely to sprout their first teeth around six months old. Sometimes teeth can come through as early as four months and as late as ten, so there is no need for alarm if teething starts a little early or a little late. If you are concerned, don't hesitate to contact your local Dentist. By the age of three, all baby teeth should come through and by around age six, your child will likely start losing them to make way for their adult (secondary) teeth.
Here's a handy guide for what age teeth are likely to erupt, and at what age they are then likely to be lost.
If you ever have any questions, our Children's Dentist is more than happy to help you when you need it most.
