What’s The Right Age For Your Child To Visit The Dentist

At South Yarra Family Dental Care, we believe that a child should have their first dental check up by the age of two. This allows us to monitor the growth and development of your child’s teeth and jaws, detect dental problems early and aids in helping them become comfortable at the dentist.

During your child’s first visit we encourage them to be present at a parent’s appointment. Hopefully, after watching your experience or over time if necessary they can sit on the chair. The aim is to get them comfortable in a clinical environment introducing the use of instruments, masks, gloves and the notion of opening their mouth.

By using regular examinations from a young age, we can build a routine with your child in case dental treatment is required.
