One of the most vital aspects of the health of your growing child is to visit the dentist to ensure there are no complications or warning signs for potential issues. At Sherwood Family Dental, we understand visiting the dentist can be a scary experience for your little one. That’s why we take tremendous pride in providing a warm, gentle environment that will allow for a stress-free checkup for both you and your child.
According to the Canadian Dental Association, it is recommended that your child’s first dental appointment should take place within six months of the emergence of the first tooth or by the child’s first birthday.
After the first visit, scheduling regular checkups every six months allows for the dentist to both protect and prevent small problems at an early stage. The other benefits of doing so include:
When your child visits the dentist, both our team of oral hygienists and Dr. Mulholland will help your child have fun while learning about proper dental habits. By using child-friendly terms, pictures and computer technology, you’ll find that our pediatric dentistry in Victoria can help your child develop dental habits that will allow for quality oral health throughout childhood and into adult life.
When the time has come for your child to visit the dentist, call Sherwood Family Dental to schedule an appointment.
