Can My Child Skip Visits to the Dentist?

Posted on January 27th, 2022

Houston dentist, Dr. Meghna Dassani at Dassani Dentistry shares information with parents about the importance of pediatric dentistry.You may think of our team at Dassani Dentistry as part of your child’s defensive line keeping them safe from gum disease and tooth decay, but we’re also myth busters! You’ve probably heard one of the most common misconceptions we have to challenge: dentistry isn’t important until after children lose their baby teeth. 

The truth is that oral health routines should be developed right from the beginning, and visiting the dentist is a foundational part of creating healthy habits.

From the beginning?

That’s right! There are tips you’ll want to follow as your little one’s smile forms and grows, and around the time you’re celebrating their first birthday, you’ll want to schedule their first dental visit. For an overview of why early introductions are crucial and what you can do to keep them on the right track before this milestone, we invite you to come to see us!

If you have any questions or you’d like to schedule a visit with Houston dentist, Dr. Meghna Dassani to get your kids started on their smile journey, contact Dassani Dentistry today!
