As children generally start getting teeth at around six months of age, this is a great time to discuss how to best care for their pearly whites.
Eighteen months of age is a good age to start involving kids in dental visits. This may be as simple as sitting on Mum or Dad's lap in the dental chair, having a ride and getting a sticker. The purpose of these early visits is to establish rapport and begin introducing dental treatment to young children in a fun and relaxed way. These appointments are the building blocks for establishing a positive attitude towards oral hygiene that can have a huge influence throughout a person's life.
