Pediatric dentistry for children starting at age 3
Many parents wonder about the best time to take their children to the dentist for their first visit. At Pennington Family Dentistry, we recommend starting at age 3. A thorough exam by a dentist who understands pediatric dental development can help identify potential problems.
Early oral examination helps us detect the earliest stages of tooth decay, when it is most easily treatable. Early detection is critical to maintain oral health, correct bad habits and provide any needed treatment. We also help parents with information about preventive home care, brushing and flossing, thumb sucking and preventing injuries. Dr. Ana P. Hoffman also provides diet counseling and information on childhood growth and dental development.
Both Dr. Ana and Dr. Bernard are also great with children. They’ll do everything possible to ensure that your child has a positive dental experience at each visit.
