Why you Should Bring Young Kids to the Dentist


Getting your children started on the right track with their oral health is imperative if you don’t want to be constantly be paying to fill their cavities as they grow up.

That’s just one of the reasons it’s so important to bring your kids to the dentist, even when they’re young. Doing so helps put them on the right track for oral health.

When should my kids see the dentist? 
It’s recommended that children visit the dentist either as soon as their first tooth appears or by their first birthday – whichever comes first. By visiting Dr. Nieku Manshadi this early, you can get a jump start on giving your kids the best oral health possible, as well as ensuring that their baby teeth are healthy and functioning properly.

Why do they need to come in so early?
The sooner you bring your kids in to see the doctor, the easier it is to help them establish good oral health routines they can carry with them for the rest of their lives. Additionally, bringing them in early allows Dr. Nieku Manshadi to ensure the teeth are healthy, free of cavities, and help your children feel comfortable in the dentist’s office. This can eliminate a lot of the anxiety usually associated with a dental visit for your children.
