We love working with our young patients and realize that they have unique needs when visiting the dentist. We try not to push young children so that they wind up fearful of the dentist’s office. We’d like their visit to be as fun and comfortable as possible, and for them to develop life-long relationships with our dentist’s office.
At our office in Tacoma, we recommend mothers and fathers of small children bring them along to the parent’s scheduled dental appointment so the little ones can see what goes on during the visit, and become accustomed to our staff and office.
We also propose that the child’s very first visit be in between eighteen months and 2 years of age. At that age we can easily start to keep an eye on the growth and progression of their mouth and teeth.
