How Often Should Children Have Dental Checkups?Here at Fredericksburg Dental Center, LLC, we are proud to help your children with their dental checkups.

Your children should have their first checkup approximately 6 months after their first tooth emerges. After their first visit, it is important that you bring them in for a checkup twice a year.

It is important not to visit less frequently than that because their mouths are constantly changing. Here at Fredericksburg Dental Center, LLC, we will help your children keep their mouths healthy or intervene if we see any signs of early decay.

Our trained staff will work with you and your children in case they have any fear of the dentist. Remember children’s fears are typically passed down from their parents. Make sure that you portray going to the dentist as a positive experience for your children. Since they will be going two times a year for the rest of their lives, they should feel comfortable going.

Many parents are unsure of when to make their children’s first dental checkup. If you have any questions regarding this or are simply concerned about an issue your children are having, contact us today at (717) 865-3457. Our qualified and friendly staff understand dealing with children and will make sure that your visit is a good one!
