When to Start?

At Sweet Tooth Pediatric & General Dentistry, we recommend establishing a “Dental Home” for their child by the time they reach one year old. Schedule your baby’s first dental visit within 6 months of the appearance of their first tooth or by their first birthday.

By initiating dental visits from an early age, you pave the way for a positive relationship with oral health. It increases the likelihood of your child receiving necessary preventive and routine dental care, helping them avoid future oral health problems. Additionally, familiarizing your little one with the dentist from a young age can foster a positive attitude towards dental visits, reducing the chances of fear and anxiety in future appointments.

A Stress-Free Visit

Our thorough Lompoc first infant dental visit is designed with parents in mind. We know you want the very best for your little one — we’re here to provide the very best care. Your baby’s first visit will include a comprehensive check of tooth eruption, personalized diet consultation for strong teeth, and practical oral hygiene instructions.

Additionally, we prioritize preventive care by applying fluoride, shielding your child’s teeth against cavities. This holistic approach not only addresses immediate needs but also establishes the foundation for a future of healthy smiles.
