When should I first bring my child to the dentist?

At our pediatric dental office, we follow the recommendations set forth by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry to have your child visit our office for the first time no later than their first birthday. This visit will focus on helping your child feel comfortable at the dentist and performing a basic examination. Your child’s first dental cleaning and exam should generally take place by the time they are 2 years old.

If you have any questions about your child’s smile, please contact our experienced doctor, Dr. Brumbaugh, and our team today. We would love to answer your questions and help you schedule your child’s first dental visit in Staunton, Virginia, with our comfortable office. We hope to serve your family soon!
