DentisteALaval.com focuses on prevention when it come to children and adults. Good dental hygiene habits from a young age will lead to healthier teeth later on. Our dentists recommend that children visit the dentist for the first time when the first teeth appear.
During this first appointment, our dental hygienists will examine and clean the teeth, as well as review brushing and flossing. Most importantly, our team will make this first meeting at the dentist a fun visit!
Some helpful tips:
- Before the appointment, read a book or watch a video with your child about visiting the dentist. Talk about it often, in a positive manner.
- During your first visit, you may remain in the room with your child and the dentist.
