A child’s visit to the dentist should be pleasant and enjoyable. Les Belles NYC provides a child-friendly atmosphere to help your little one feel at ease. We are delighted to provide dental care to kids of all ages and get them started on the path to a lifetime of oral health.
You and your child will both enjoy the holistic way in which we approach dental care at Les Belles NYC. Oral health is not set apart from general health; it is integrated into your lifestyle. This is vital because the condition of your mouth can affect other parts of your body. Teaching kids the importance of taking care of their teeth and gums early will help them stay healthy throughout their lifetime. Kids also enjoy learning about their teeth and how to properly care for them.
We Start Seeing Kids at 8 Months Old, or with 4 Teeth
The Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) advises parents to make the first dental appointment for a child by their first birthday and preferably within six months of the eruption of their first tooth. We encourage you to make your child’s first dental appointment at eight months old or when the fourth tooth erupts.
It is best to establish good habits and proper care of the teeth and gums when your child’s teeth first appear. Learning how to clean your baby’s teeth and gums will also save you the expense associated with cavities and gum issues in the future. At Les Belles NYC, we will partner with you to develop an oral care program for your child that will last a lifetime.
