Your Child's First Dental Visit

From your child's first dentist appointment and beyond, Dr. Spacek and her friendly team work to cultivate a positive relationship with dental health. Our team will take a close look at your child's oral health, utilizing digital x-rays for enhanced safety and reduced radiation exposure.

The American Dental Association, American Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry all recommend that your child's first dental visit should take place around 12 months of age or shortly after the eruption of the first baby tooth. This proactive approach will help us identify potential problems early on, and provide a positive introduction to all the sights, sounds and sensations of the dentist's office.

With engaging education, Dr. Caitlin will help your child build a strong foundation of oral hygiene habits, so they have everything they need to supplement their regular visits with healthy habits at home.
