When should I bring my child for their first appointment?

All of your children’s baby teeth should have erupted by the time they are two-and-a-half years old. However, we recommend your child's first dental appointment should commence from 12 months of age. It should be talked about as a positive experience and - if your child is brought in at this early age – it probably will be!

A simple examination should be all that is needed, and this will encourage your child to enjoy their dental experience. If you have older children, bring your younger one to watch their dental appointment. The more positive experiences your child can have at the dentist, the better it will be.
