Your child’s first “regular” appointment with the dentist should be just after his or her third birthday. This visit is designed to help you child become comfortable in our office and involves a gentle examination of the teeth and gums. We may also apply fluoride, clean the teeth, or take X-rays, and we will review with you the best ways to help your child care for his or her teeth at home. Dr. Scott McQuiston and our team go the extra mile to make sure your child feels comfortable and safe throughout their entire appointment.
In addition to regular dental visits, it is important for children to learn good oral habits at home. We encourage you to teach your child to brush and floss their teeth daily and eat a balanced, nutritious diet.
