At Corey I. Johnson D.D.S., P.C., we enjoy caring for patients of all ages! We welcome you to bring your entire family to our comfortable dental office for excellent dental care. Our dentist and dental team are friendly and caring, and they are certain to put even young children at ease during their visit. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that you bring your child to the dentist for their first visit when their first tooth comes in, which is usually between the ages of 6 and 12 months. By visiting the dentist early, you can better educate yourself on how to care for your child’s teeth. If your child has no risk factors for developing cavities and his teeth seem to be developing properly, however, you can probably wait until your child is a bit older for their first dental visit.
Be sure to help your child clean their teeth with a soft-bristled, child-size toothbrush. To further protect your child’s teeth from decay, Dr. Corey Johnson may suggest dental sealants. For more information on dental sealants, preventive dentistry, and pediatric dentistry in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, we invite you to contact us today. We are committed to caring for your family!
