How Often Should My Child Visit a Pediatric Dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that all children should visit the dentist at least two times a year. They should be checked for cavities or any other dental issues that may occur, because if left untreated these problems can eventually become more serious in the long term.

While it can be beneficial to follow the guidline recommended above, one thing you should keep in mind is that every child is unique and may have different dental needs.  If your child shows signs of dental problems, we may recommend more visits to treat these problems accordingly.

Another way to help your child keep good oral health is to monitor oral care habits, especially if your child is still young. Children around the age of 2-5 usually require some sort of monitoring during their dental care routine.


Checkup Visit

Throughout your child’s dental care visits, our doctor will evaluate your child’s state of oral health and will be able to find any issues.  These twice a year checkups are ususally when most problems like cavaties, tooth decay, and irregular growth patterns.  This is why coming in twice a year is so important, so we can keep track on how your child is doing.
