Twickenham Family Dentistry
Dr. Brian Cook

When should my child first see the dentist?

At Twickenham Family Dentistry, our dentist is happy to provide all-age dentistry for our patients and their families. And when it comes to children, your Huntsville, AL dentist likes to see them early for several reasons.

First, we want to familiarize your child with the dental clinic atmosphere from an early age. This helps them feel more comfortable and at ease during treatment. We also like to make sure teeth are coming in as they should and that their jaw is developing correctly to accommodate their teeth.

We recommend bringing your child to the dentist when you notice their first tooth. This is typically around the six-month mark. But, of course, you can bring your child before then if you have specific concerns or questions for your child’s dentist in Huntsville, AL.

The first few appointments involve checking the teeth, gums, and jaw health. We also provide your child a ride in the dental chair and spend time getting to know them. This is also a great opportunity to ask questions or talk to a team member about any concerns. Additionally, we can provide at-home dental care tips and nutrition counseling if needed.
