At which age should a child have their first visit to a dentist?

Hi, my name is Tokiko Poppe from Cosmos Dentistry in Bellevue, Washington. Today I want to talk about Pediatric Dentistry.

Why do you visit dentists as early as zero? We can tell a lot of things about growth and how the child is going to grow and how we can prevent so many diseases like cavities and periodontal disease, and possibly we can predict how the child’s face and teeth are going to grow. We can prevent them from having more complicated issues in the future by addressing their usual habit, how they drink, how they swallow, how they take care of the mouth, and nutrition.

What is unique about Pediatric Dentistry?

Pediatric patients, their needs for each age are completely different. Every visit is going to be different. For example, somebody who could not sit in a dental chair before kindergarten will be able to start on their own once they start kindergarten, so we really have to be mindful about each growth and what the children are feeling on that day, so we cater to their needs. The biggest focus is that we want to prevent a lot of things from happening to them and avoid any complicated procedures in the future.
