Your Child’s First Dental Visit

Life-Long Dental Health for Tucson Kids

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a baby’s first dental visit happen at age 1 or no later than 6 months after the 1st tooth comes in.

Early visits help your child become comfortable with the doctors and team.

  • Demonstration of tooth brushing and flossing
