vital in developing a properly structured smile in adulthood. If a baby tooth is lost too soon, it can lead
to crowding of adult teeth, which can negatively affect bite alignment. The bottom line is that you should
care for your child’s baby teeth as if they were adult teeth to help them get a healthy smile that lasts
into adulthood.

When To Visit?  First visit by first birthday

Just as you need to establish a pediatrician for your child, you need to establish a pediatric dentist for
your child. Bring in your child when the first tooth appears or no later than his/her first birthday*.

Starting early examination and preventive care will protect your child's teeth now and in the future. This
examination allows the pediatric dentist to examine the shape of the baby's jaws and the condition of
the oral tissues.
