Children’s Dental Stages

High-Quality Dental Care for Kids of All Ages

Managing Your Child’s Oral Health Every Step of the Way

Proper oral hygiene is essential to a child’s health and development. By the time they are 3 years old, most children will have all 20 of their baby teeth, but parents should expect the first tooth to emerge between 6 months to 1 year old. That means it is important to schedule your child’s first dental appointment early on, developing healthy habits and keeping a close watch on any irregularities. As your child grows, so will their need for frequent dental care.  For more information, see the three stages of Pediatric Dentistry listed below.
