Do you see children? What age should they start?
We love to see children at Corn Family Dentistry!
We know first visits are important for children to set them up for success in the future, and this is why Dr. Corn spends time getting to know your child and building a relationship with them early on. We encourage parents to bring their children to their own dental appointments so they can get acclimated to our office and see that the dentist isn’t a scary place.
Ideally, Dr. Corn likes to start seeing children around the age of two years old. While this may seem early, we want to help your child get comfortable with the “big chair” and the instruments we use. This also gives us an opportunity to begin monitoring your child’s development so we can make you aware of any concerns early on.
As you child gets older, we may recommend services such as fluoride treatments, dental sealants, and mouth guards. Fluoride and dental sealants help build, strengthen, and protect small teeth from tooth decay and cavities. Mouth guards are essential in protecting your child’s mouth and teeth from sports-related injuries.
