The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child’s first dental visit should be no later than his/her 1st birthday!!!
We recommend that your child be seen when his or her first teeth begin to erupt but no later than his or her first birthday. Why so early? Because almost half of children have tooth decay or cavities before they reach kindergarten. Tooth decay can affect how your child grows, can cause significant pain, and may even make your child miss days in school.
Establish a Dental Home
At Say Ahhh! we encourage parents to establish a dental home for their child no later than at age 1. This means that we want to help parents select our dental office where their child can receive comprehensive oral health care that is provided regularly and is centered around your family needs.
You and your loved ones will love Say Ahhh! Pediatric Dentistry for many reasons. We have a fun office and make sure all of our young patients are comfortable and have a great experience when visiting us. Though young children are small, they can have big fears or anxiety about going somewhere to have a a stranger look in their mouth and do things they don’t understand. Not here! Kids love Dr. Foster, are engaged in the process, and feel comfortable about what happens in the office. Dr. Foster and her team take the time to explain what is going on and even make the process fun.
For those in the Houston and surrounding area with children looking for a Pediatric Dentist, you won’t regret visiting Sah Ahhh! Pediatric Dentistry. We love what we do and love making trips to the dentist as comfortable and enjoyable as possible for our young friends.
