Your Child's First Visit | North York, ON

Your child’s first dental visit at a young age helps them develop good dental habits for life, and helps to prevent dental fear or anxiety from developing.

A very brief exam to ensure normal dental development is all that is needed during your toddlers first dental appointment. The current recommendation is to have this exam 6-12 months after the first teeth have erupted or around 18-24 months of age.

If your toddler has an older sibling, we can have your youngest come in with their older brother or sister. At this young age, it’s easy to get your little one comfortable with the dental office, as they are full of wonder and enjoy exploring.

Children Age 9 And Under

  • We will review your child's medical history
  • Perform a dental exam which includes charting their current dentition
  • Check for normal dental development
  • Take photos of their mouth and teeth
  • Take dental x-rays of their teeth and jawbone
  • Let you know how everything looks

Most kids under the age of 9 also have their teeth cleaned during this exam.

Children Age 10 And Over

Older kids with full dentition will have the same exam as kids under the age of 9 and the appointment will be slightly longer as older children with full dentitions have more teeth to chart.

Is your little one very anxious about the dentist?
