At Rivereast Dental Group, we know how important it is to care for your child’s teeth from the moment they arrive. When you bring your child into our office after receiving their first baby tooth, Dr. Douglas Doran and our team will work to make sure that your child is relaxed and happy during their checkup. Not only will we clean your child’s teeth and monitor their oral health but we will provide maintenance tips for the best at-home dental care. To schedule your child’s first dentist visit in Marlborough, Connecticut, we invite you to contact us today at 860.295.9536.

Protecting your child’s teeth is important for life-long oral health. According to the American Dental Association, your child should have their first visit to the dentist no later than 6 months after their first tooth comes in and no later than your child’s first birthday. By visiting the dentist early on, you can help us protect your child’s smile as they receive their primary, and later, permanent, teeth.

When you bring your child into our office early on, we can help you know how to best clean your child’s teeth during the teething process, and while your child waits to receive their permanent teeth. We also discuss diet as an influence on oral health, as well as when fluoride toothpaste is appropriate. Our caring dentist and team can also help answer any other questions you many have about taking care of your child’s teeth. When you bring your child into our office, our dentist can also monitor your child’s growth for signs of any future irregularities. This can allow your child to receive early treatment, thus preventing future problems all together. If you have questions or concerns about your child’s first dental visit, we invite you to please call or visit our office. We are happy to help in any way.
