First Dental Visit for Kids

First Dental Visit

At Melbourne Centre for Dentistry, we go above and beyond to make kids’ first dental visits (and all visits) fun! We want to create an enjoyable experience for our youngest patients.

During a child’s very first visit, it might be as simple as a ride with a parent on the dental chair, to get familiarised with the surroundings. Some children prefer to bring a favourite soft toy along with them for this first appointment. We will often have a look at “Mr. Teddy’s” teeth before the child, to show them what will happen. A gentle approach is always used to get them used to seeing the dentist. With time, routine dental visits will create great oral hygiene habits throughout life.

We recommend that a child ideally have their first dental visit by their 1st birthday. This allows your child’s oral development and growth to be monitored. We can also look out for any habits which might be harmful to their oral health, talk about preventative home care and diet, and discuss any concerns or questions that you as caregivers may have. After all, prevention is the best medicine!
