First Tooth First Visit

The goal is to have a dental visit before there is a problem. Recommended routine dental visits will let your child’s dental provider catch small problems early.

Here are 3 reasons to take your child for dental exams:

  • You can find out if the cleaning you do at home is working.
  • Your dentist can find problems right away and fix them.
  • Your child can learn that going to the dental office helps prevent problems.

Tooth decay can start as soon as the first tooth erupts into the mouth. Please don’t delay this very important visit and call your family dental office or the Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit to set up an appointment. For more information contact us:
