When should children have their first cleaning?


FAQs > When should children have their first cleaning?

We feel that at roughly age 3, a child is able to comprehend and cooperate fully to have a dental examination and first cleaning.

This lends itself to a good first experience, and helps us to gain their trust.

However, if a parent notices a potential problem, they can certainly bring them in sooner, as long as they understand that we may have to make a referral to a pedodontist if a serious dental treatment is needed.
