Getting off to a great start dentally is important and this means an early dental visit.

The best time to visit the Yonge Eglinton Centre Dental clinic is 6 months after the primary first tooth comes in. and no later than the first birthday.  Early dental issues are easier to treat than waiting.

You should protect against tooth decay, teething issues, gum disease and problems associated with thumb sucking or pacifiers.

Become informed about the first visit.  Call the Yonge Eglinton office and ask what will be done for your child.  Make the appointment a positive experience.  Use the childrens books that are available to help your child realize that the dental visit is a fun and happy experience.

Start with a gentle thorough exam to make your child’s dental experience one to look forward to.
