When should my child first see the dentist?

At George Family Dentistry, we are happy to see children once their baby teeth have erupted (broken through). We get a lot of pleasure out of helping kids enjoy a positive experience every time they visit our Portland, IN dental office. Getting your child started on a lifetime of good oral health care habits is one of the best things we can do for them.

The goal of the first visit is for Dr. Malcolm George and our team to meet them and show them that visits to the dentist can be fun. It’s important for us to make sure that your child gradually gets used to being around us in the office environment. Our professional team takes all the time needed to treat your child with the special care they need to help them feel safe and secure.

As parents, we know that you may have questions and concerns about planning your child’s first trip to see the dentist. We understand, and we welcome all your questions. Please feel free to call our office to arrange an appointment to stop by and visit so you and your child can get to know Dr. George and our team.
