As Katy continues to grow, so do the health and wellness options. We've compiled a comprehensive list of dental and orthodontic practitioners who can meet your family's dental care needs. Find out how early to have your child seen, how frequently, and other important information about keeping your smile healthy and beautiful.
Dental exams are a critical part of your child’s preventive health care and help protect your child's oral health. These appointments give your child's dentist the opportunity to detect problems early, when they're most treatable, and provide tips for caring for your child's teeth.
First Dental Visit
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends the following check ups for children:
Ages 6 months to 1 year: Schedule your child's first dental exam after the first tooth erupts and no later than the first birthday.
Toddlers, school-age children and adolescents: Schedule regular dental checkups, typically every six months. However, the dentist might recommend fewer or more-frequent visits depending on your child's risk factors for oral health problems.
