South Windsor Dental is a true family practice, so of course, that means we’re more than happy to see your children and make sure they grow up to have a lifetime of happy, healthy smiles.
In fact, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry suggests that all children should visit a dentist by the time they are 1 year old. Why? These early appointments serve two important purposes.
Firstly, they allow Dr. Sara Curcio to make sure your child’s teeth are developing correctly. If she spots an area of concern early, it will be much simpler and easier for her treat it while your child is young rather than wait till later.
These appointments are also essential to teach your child just how important dental care really is. They give you and Dr. Curcio a chance to discuss with them why taking care of their teeth matters, how to do it, how their diet affects their smile, and so on. These early visits will also help your child establish a positive connection to going to the dentist, which will help them better maintain their dental care as they grow up and become more independent.
Do you have a little smile at home? If so, we’d love to meet them! To get your child on the path to sustained oral health and a beautiful smile, simply contact us today for an appointment.
