At what age can I bring my child to the dentist?
Columbus Ohio Dentist, Dr. Shane Fixari talks about what is a good age to start bringing your child to the dentist.
three years old he should be able to come to the dentist. I recommend for parents to think about their kids coming to the dentist as soon as they have teeth or as soon as they think the child would be able to sit in the chair and listen to directions and comfortably go through an appointment. If you’re not sure you could bring him with you when you get your teeth cleaned and he can watch.
You can have him sit on your lap and we can count his teeth while he’s here and we can gauge whether he is of the right age to sit through an appointment or not. He might be interested. He might not. You just want the experience to be pleasant because he is going to have appointments for the rest of his life and you don’t want him to be afraid.
