Oral Health for Kids
Brushing requires both the development of fine motor skills, patience, and attention to detail. Most kids are not able to properly brush their teeth without help until they are between the ages of 6 and 8 years old. Your dentist can watch your child and help you determine when he or she is old enough to brush independently. In the meantime, encourage your child to brush but follow up and provide hands-on assistance. Be sure that your child knows to brush the backs and tops of their teeth, not just the front.

A Child's First Dentist Visit
We recommend that children visit a dentist for by their first birthday. These visits are both an opportunity for your dentist to check the development of your child's mouth and teeth and for your child to begin to become accustomed to visiting the dentist, sitting in the dentist chair, and having people check his or her teeth. These first visits are essential for building a lifetime of good dental health and habits.
