Protect Your Child’s Smile
Proper pediatric care is essential for children of all ages. Seeing a dentist regularly from a young age helps eliminate the risk of developing dental anxiety, and ensures that an expert is keeping an eye on their oral development and health. Dr. Lau is an experienced pediatric dentist, and he will always make sure that you and your family feel comfortable and at home at Wisconsin Dental Wellness.
When Should My Child See The Dentist?
Scheduling Their First Appointment
If you’re a new parent, you may be wondering when to bring your child to the dentist for the first time. Most dentists recommend that you bring your child in as soon as their first tooth erupts, or once they turn one year old; whichever comes first. Early dental appointments are the best way to make sure your child’s oral development is on track, and that any potential issues are addressed before they become more serious.
The Importance Of A “Dental Home”
Understanding The Doctor/Patient Relationship
Bringing your child to the same dentist throughout childhood has a number of benefits. First, it helps them feel more comfortable with dental appointments and encourages the development of better oral hygiene habits. This also allows you to develop a real relationship with your family dentist and ensures your child gets the best care from infancy through their teenage years and beyond. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Lau today and take the first steps towards a lifelong dental relationship with Wisconsin Dental Wellness.
Your Child’s First Appointment
What To Expect
Your first visit to Wisconsin Dental Wellness will typically include a basic oral exam. X-rays may be taken for older children, and your child’s teeth may be cleaned. After the exam is over, Dr. Lau will discuss any issues, help you schedule your next checkup, and go over the basics of pediatric oral health. He will always take the time to answer any questions you may have about your child’s oral development. As your child grows older, Dr. Lau may also recommend other preventive procedures, such as fluoride treatments and dental sealants.
